Radhakrishnan plays with the tiny human figures in a very intuitive fashion, led by the instinct of time that formulates the strength and depth of the impending composition of the resultant sculptures. While familiarity assures the viewer of the artist’s consistency as a creative being, the newness that Radhakrishnan reveals in each of his sculptures pushes the viewer to a new way of thinking and enjoying.
His works will on display at India Art Fair 2015 at the booth by Chawla Art Gallery. Radhakrishnan is one new generations of sculptors who has successfully brought about a definitive resurgence in Indian sculptures. Like many of his contemporaries, he is a figurative sculptor but his preference of modelling and bronze-casting over new material sets him apart from the rest of them. Recharging age-old sculptural process with a new sensibility, thus is the singular challenge he brings to modern Indian sculptures. And this makes him a modernist - who approaches his work with discernable ambition and considerable aplomb while steering clear of brinkmanship.
With celebration of sensuality as one of its running theme his works is at once both intimate and universal in its appeal. A personal commemorative sculpture with the scale and presence that hold well in natural settings, his works have found permanent home in a number of public collections all over the world.
