The Genesis of Nature
Inspired by the lotus, its unique spiritual and meditative attributes, P K Sadaanandan has created Taamara: The Genesis of Nature. Painted with natural colour on a variety of mediums - namely canvas, board and paper, the artist has used ancient mural painting techniques to create these visually stunning works.
His paintings express a rare finesse as manifested in this series of 11 works, with forms that radiate warmth and luminescence. His colours are exuberant, yet subtle, his strokes bold, but not overpowering. His mastery of the brush in multiple mediums speaks volumes of his depth, fine skill and passion in reflecting the earthy beauty of nature.
One of the biggest attractions of the third edition of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale was a massive natural colour mural by P K Sadaanandan depicting a popular story from Kerala folklore. This mural recently found its way as a larger-than-life installation at the new T3 terminal building of Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL).
