Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran: False Gods
Time Out says
The Sydney artist looks to the gods for this larger-than-life sculpture exhibition
Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran has become pretty well known in recent years around Sydney thanks to his distinctive sculptures and paintings. Plenty of people who aren’t even part of the art world could identify a Ramesh work.
This new series of works at Sullivan+Strumpf represents a bit of a change in direction for the artist, bringing all sorts of materials into the fold alongside his ceramics to create his largest works yet. The sculptures represent mythical, god-like figures and incorporate neon, LED, optic fibre, synthetic hair, perspex, concrete, digitally printed fabric and metal. As is usually the case, Nithiyendran is considering religion and the intersection of Western and Eastern cultures and philosophies.
Running concurrently to Nithiyendran’s exhibition at Sullivan+Strumpf is an exhibition of Tim Silver sculptures.
