Why and how were these works chosen?   

 I discovered Viswanadhan recently. The artist, however, has been around for quite some time, stopping in Paris in the 
1960s, where he was noticed and supported by a major Paris gallery. In 2012, at the Fernand Léger Gallery (Ivry-sur-
Seine), I saw his paintings for the first time, which left me both confused and astonished, a sign that his work was taking 
me along paths to places I had never before explored. Among the works shown, one in particular caught my attention, 
and it is from this work (dated 2001) that the selection being exhibited here today was constituted. This selection covers 
a pivotal period in the development of Viswanadhan’s art.

The background of the paintings of that period is white, while the pigments used come from India. Green, red, yellow 

ochre and blue mixed with casein are applied in wide, flat transparent or opaque strokes, organising the painting 
geometrically. Through layer after layer of brush strokes, a subtle play of colours slowly appears. Visually, the 
sensations are shimmering, almost earthy. Varying transparencies and opacities are irregularly woven into the painting, 
inventing endlessly new tonalities and giving off a rare brightness.

Viswanadhan stands over the stretched canvas when he works, a position that he had already adopted as a child, 

when he was tracing the signs of tantric rituals in the sand. Large brush strokes infuse the space of his painting with a 
rhythm, which the artist regularly brings to a halt at the centre of his work, or almost. This simple act suffices to introduce 
an irregular element into the geometric design created by the alternating application of colours. Slowly and regularly, the
strokes follow the same movement, straight and repetitive, while the body moves and revolves around the canvas 
placed on the floor or on a table in the artist’s studio.

The selection of works by Velu Viswanadhan proposed here aims to show the point where the achievements of Indian

culture come together with those of contemporary art; a point of precious equilibrium between uniqueness and 
contemporaneousness.

2013 April Fools fave prank...


Cambridge: Scientists breed rabbits with human ears
They claim major breakthrough in organ production specifically for transplant.

___

Henry Oaks / The Telegraph
07:48AM GMT 01 Apr 2013


By introducing human embryonic stem cells at the aural maturation stage 
of rabbit foetuses in utero, at 24-days gestation, a team at 'Cambridge 
Organ Network' produced six healthy kits.


"We choose rabbits because they breed so fast we'll have all the ears for 
human transplant that we need, helping countless accident victims and 
those born with defects", said professor Alid Loyas, the organisation's 
head scientist.
