Catalogue Note

'Sakti's paintings are often inspired by poetry - Tagore and Baudelaire for example - and, of course, by art since his visits to the art Eldorado of the East and the West. If his images do not come straight from reality that we know as such, they come often from the world of art and poetry, without any specific art-historical or literary reference.' (Manasij Majumder, Sakti Burman: Dreamer on the Ark, 2005, p. 130).
