Retrospective of 100 works by artist A Ramachandran at Kochi

Fifty-six years after he left Kerala to study art that eventually lent him global fame as a painter-sculptor, A. Ramachandran’s native state is poised to host its first show of the Delhi-based icon. As many as 100 works of the Padma Bhushan awardee completed over the past half a century are slated to be exhibited at a mini retrospective in this city from tomorrow (Sunday). Curated by well-known art historian R Siva Kumar, also a Malayali, the Kochi exhibition is being organised by the renowned Vadehra Art Gallery (VAG) of the national capital. The show will feature 48 of Ramachandran’s paintings, 38 water-colours and ten etchings besides four sculptures including two sculptural groups, revealed Arun Vadehra, director of VAG, which is celebrating its 25th year....

Kerala sees debut show of Delhi-based Malayali's 100 works

 “I have a feeling that the new generation would receive my paintings better,” he maintained, standing next to illustrious filmmaker Adoor Gopalakrishnan and mingling with art buffs who gathered in the evening to take in the 78-year-old icon’s works that curator R Siva Kumar has broadly classified into two: pre- and post-Yayati.

It was in 1986 that the artist completed his masterpiece Yayati, his largest work by far. The 60-ft-by-8-ft creation “redefines his idea of a mural and of a modernist painter itself”, observed Prof Siva Kumar, who teaches at Kala Bhavan in Santiniketan — also Ramachandran’s alma mater....

Rajasthani Bhils on Ramachandran's 'brush' repertoire

 

Acclaimed painter A. Ramachandran's love of Rajasthan's Bhil community continues with the same vigour even after more than four decades.

The artist's first exhibition in his native state is currently on here. It began Aug 11.

"The little Bhil villages gave me a second homecoming," noted Ramachandran who left Thiruvananthapuram for West Bengal in 1957.

India could have done without modern art, says Ramachandran

“Ideally, our art should be advancing along a path that is well rooted in the country’s own visual culture,” says the Delhi-based septuagenarian. His first-ever exhibition of works in his homeland Kerala concluded here on Sunday evening.

Unlike in the Western world, India has never had a historic necessity to experiment with a genre that has come to be known as modern art, according to renowned painter-sculptor A. Ramachandran....

Inauguration of Debut Show in Kerala

 

"Kerala’s most spacious and sophisticated art gallery opened its both floors to flaunt close to 100 acclaimed works of a long-lost son, as the first-ever exhibition of renowned painter-sculptor A Ramachandran in his home-state opened here today.

The refurbished one-time palace split its well-lit space to tastefully accommodate contrasting genres of two defining periods of the Delhi-settled septuagenarian, letting the Padma Bhushan awardee realise a decade-old dream of showing own creations to fellow Malayalis — courtesy a gallery based in his resident metropolis upcountry...."
