The contorted structures of faces and masses of the human body, in her characteristic handling of the media—fibreglass, and terracotta—are compelling and provoke a feeling of thought and emotion.
A film on Ratnabali Kant’s career in art
The figures of men are created in relief—a compromise between the flat and the round, and the woman in three dimensions to suit her composition.
The first relates to the abduction theme, wherein Sita, bearing a horrified look, is shown standing with the falling wings of Jatayu around her, symbolizing his vain attempt to save her from Ravana.
The other work relates to Abhimanyu, the son of Arjuna who fell fighting against fearful odds.
He is shown falling on the ground as a dismembered figure, with a group of terrible masks symbolizing fearsome and malicious people, jeering at him.
Although she achieves form definition by the accentuation of mass in the figures which are enveloped by the dark color, structure, and rhythm are also highlighted by the directional movement linking the figures.
The mass and fleshy details seem to emerge from the mysterious dark color, fluctuating in shape with changing light.
There is an emphasis on gestures. Gesticulating rhetorically, her female figures are emotionally charged to symbolize the injustice and the outrage that woman has been subjected to by men and society since times Immemorial.
