Choosing bronze as her favourite medium, Meera Mukherjee (1923-1998) formed her own simplistic, modernist, life-like world of sculptures. They possess a `lifeforce' that speaks to the ordinary being instead of alienating them. Mukherjee's commitment to her practice made her valiant enough to step out of her comfort zone and dedicate herself to visual arts. Her devotion to the craft traditions of India guided her to Madhya Pradesh, Bengal and South India.
The artist's language is similar to that of the quotidian life in her immediate surroundings, shedding light upon social issues.
