Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran, by Jaklyn Babington
This monograph celebrates the work of one of Australia's most prominent and sought-after contemporary artists, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran. Ramesh engages with the complexities of global contemporary culture, and is making waves across the Asia Pacific and beyond with his rough-edged, vibrant, new-age idols that explore the politics of sex, the monument, gender and religion. This highly anticipated monograph catalogues the tremendous contributions of this influential practitioner. It frames the breadth and depth of his sculptural installation and painting practice with essays by high-profile writers from around the world, as well as with full-color reproductions that highlight the sensuality, life force and monumentality of his work.
