Cityscapes Series, Oil on canvas.
I completed these paintings between 1987 and 2000. Rosemary George, in her article on this series, wrote “Arijit Sen’s paintings help to visualize some of these complexities of reproducing similar though not identical notions of home in both national and diasporic contexts. The cityscapes produced by the South Asian American, Berkeley-based artist/architect Arijit Sen, offer a panoramic view of real and imagined city scenes to which all the landscapes of the places he has lived in (and/or imagined) contribute.”
