About Sakti Burman - Limited Edition Prints
Stop. Let reality cease. Take a deep breath. Leave the world you know behind and enter a world filled with mythical characters, fleshed out in marble-like hues. You’ve entered the realm of Sakti Burman. You’ll find jubilatory people, ethereal animals, anthropomorphic beings, and emblems from various myths and religions. You’re in a fragmentary world of the past: a world faded, fresco-like.
Sakti Burman Limited Edition Prints features recent works by the artist. For Burman, “the impulse to continue painting figures, to focus on humans, their feelings, their myths and legends, proved too strong” (quoted in Sakti Burman: The Wonder of It All). And so you encounter these sensual, magical beings, cohabiting with animals and immersed in their own, private world, unaware of each other.
