This woodcut print by Chandan Bez Baruah (b. 1979) is titled ‘Somewhere in Northeast India Pt-I’ and was created in 2020.
The desolation of Chandan Bez Baruah’s landscape speaks volumes. It bears witness to an ecosystem brutalised by rampant urbanisation. To the artist, there’s a close link between the collapsing of natural and political diversities in his homeland. Drawing on nostalgia, he returns to the forested hills of Assam and laments the permanent bruises left upon them by tarred roads, tea gardens and other signs of human encroachment.
