Creature (1983)


Dhruva Mistry was born in India. Much of his work of the last few years has been concerned, as here, with the idea of hybrids of man and beast to suggest creatures of fabulous power. These works have been influenced by mythology and by Mistry's native India where man has no unique or privileged status over animals. The creatures look us in the eye with a sense of other-worldliness now most unusual in the art of the industrialized West.
