Sakunta Dasgupta works in the unusual medium of papier collé, a form of collage which only makes use of torn paper.

Through the careful use of fragmented text and colour, his intricate works are simple, but not lacking complexity.

Fine sans-serif script adds texture to thin fabric, or parts the face with small pores, while heavy bold text strategically adds density to thick hair.

In a way, papier collé is a medium characterized by randomness and surprise—each fragment revealing a hidden story or meaning.

On the other hand Dasgupta’s work brings order to chaos, structuring many shards into a figurative, recognizable whole.
