Jenson Anto aims at striking a continual dialogue with the infinite facets of the dynamic nature. The transient mode of his art continued when he moved to Wimbledon College of Art in London to pursue his masters in 2005, packaged as part of Charles Wallace India trust award. Embarking on a journey which he terms a ‘path to nothingness’, the landscapes started diffusing and assumed a mutilated, minimal form, so evident in his present oeuvre. Abstraction to Jenson, provided him that option of not yielding to any particular visual vocabulary. The natural and found objects lying in a redundant position gather potential for movement for Jenson who often created temporary sculptures which draw out the character of their environment.
