Times of India Article - "His art is for eyes, not critics"

 If an artist is also articulate, it's a bonus for art aficionados and neophytes alike as that affords vivid glimpses into the mind behind the oeuvre. Critics and reviewers, of course, have less elbow room then. Happily, snow-haired A Ramachandran, whose two-part retrospective is on at New Delhi's Lalit Kala Akademi, is one of those rare artists.

Domains of Eco-Criticism

Feature Article in 'Art & Deal' Indian art magazine by Siddharth Sivakumar.

Siddharth writes about the recently concluded exhibition of the artist at Kochi.

"While upstairs, we discovered an angry young man with an interest in western modernism, downstairs we meet a
happy old man contemplating on his own cultural moorings. His large sculptural installation Bahuroopi and two large
canvases dominated the large central hall, through which one entered the exhibition on the ground floor. Other works were thematically distributed in the other two rooms. As one turned left from this room one encountered the Birth of the Palash Tree, wherein we saw the artist as a kinnara painting the world into existence..."
