Ashvita’s is pleased to present “On the
Other Side of Life,” an exhibition of rare paintings and drawings by the Indian
artist K. Ramanujam.
Ramanujam (1941-1973) was an incredibly
gifted artist who popularly came to be associated with the Cholamandal Artists' Village group, yet brought out concerns in art that were completely different
from what his peers were engaged in. His works more often than not illustrate
his interest in fantasy, particularly the Surreal and dreamlike, and narrate
fictions and stories that are deeply personal in nature. Joyous yet
melancholic, intimate yet distant, complex yet child-like, they straddle the
realms of the figurative and abstract. Ramanujam is known for his highly original
visual language that he conjures using pen and ink, and various other mediums
that display his facility with the line.
