This catalogue presents the recent work of painter and sculptor Josh P.S., exhibited between 2005 and 2008. Depicting icons that reference India's colonial past, his work navigates the hazy terrain between memory and myth while exploring the themes of exploitation, resistance and violence. His sepia-toned paintings are reminiscent of old photographs in newspaper clippings or school textbooks. Seemingly disjointed from one another, his paintings and sculptures reflect the "contesting historical narratives" that preoccupy his practice.
