The Metaphysical Edge – 2016
S. Nandagopal

Art Musings presents a solo exhibition entitled ‘The Metaphysical Edge’ by Cholamandal based S. Nandagopal, Nandagopal is an artist steeped in the traditions of his country, and yet his work has a contemporary sensibility that appeals to an international taste. While Nandagopal’s regular medium is welded copper and brass sculpture with enamel finish, for the first time in several decades, Nandagopal has made a major change in medium and in this exhibition, and here he features a suite of 28 paintings done in colored, gold & silver inks. His sculptures have gods, goddesses, mythical creatures and airborne demigods. These vibrant small format ink paintings also have the same protagonists. For Nandagopal, the fascination has been in explaining what could come out of the aesthetic adventure of the attempt to reconcile the latent memories of a magnificent, highly evolved tradition and experiences of a vital contemporary West.
