The genre-defying sculptures of contemporary artist Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran


The first major monograph on the boundary-pushing work of painter and sculptor, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran.


ISBN: 9781760762483 Category:


Bursting with energy and life force, this visual cornucopia celebrates the work of Sri Lankan Australian sculptor and painter, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran, one of Australia’s most prominent and sought-after contemporary artists. His exuberant ceramic idols and installations gleam with vivid impossible-to-ignore immediacy, provoking and stimulating audiences as he explores the politics of sex, gender and religion.

Continually playing with form, materiality and scale, Ramesh has set new benchmarks in the field of ceramics. This highly anticipated monograph catalogues over 500 pieces in his signature neo-expressionist style. The rough-edged playfulness of his animated beings will appeal to both established collectors and seekers of the unconventional.
