‘Blood and Spit’ New Works, By T.V Santhosh

Here Santhosh presents large-scale figurative paintings in vibrant hues, his limited palette including electric green, neon yellow and shocking orange. Eight watercolors in gray offer a subdued counterpoint to the bold paintings, their figures enveloped in an impressionistic wash. While the work is conceptually based, Santhosh’s use of deeply saturated color and fluid edges bring the viewer to an elevated state of mind and adds an unnerving quality to the paintings. The tightness of the frame and forcibly close vantage point harkens back to the film noir genre bringing the viewer to a reflective state. His images depict chaos and paranoia relating to current media coverage of contemporary events. His exploration demonstrates a reality on the verge of explosion as if time had been stopped. Simultaneously, the work is profoundly human and cerebral. Although his imagery is extremely current, they have become universal as we live with an over saturation of imagery and rapid exchanges of ideas. People of all contexts and backgrounds can relate to their approach.

By entering the world of T. V. Santhosh, we become accomplices to the drama and violence we have experienced. We are left with a snapshot of a greater story both immediate and timeless, a witness to his conscience.

Born in Kerala, T.V. Santhosh earned his B.F.A from Kalabhavan, Santiniketan, West Bengal, and his M.F.A in Sculpture, from M.S.U Baroda. A major presence in the Indian and international art scenes over the last decade Santhosh has exhibited his work at numerous international art galleries and museums. Prominent museum shows include ‘India Xianzai’ Museum of Contemporary Art, Shangai, China, 2009; ‘Passage to India, Parts I and II New Indian Art from the Frank Cohen Collection’, at Initial Access, Wolverhampton, UK, 2008 and 2009; ‘Aftershock, Sinsbury entre, Contemporary Art Norwich, England, 2007; and ‘Continuity and Transformation’ promoted by Provincia di Milano, Italy, 2007

A catalogue featuring works by T.V. Santhosh from 2007-2009 and essays by Shaheen Merali, Brigitte Ulmer, Alexander Keefe and Santhosh S. is available.

Gary Colclough, Freya Douglas-Morris, Anne Eggebert, Joel Tomlin, Paul Kindersley, Cathy Lomax, Alli Sharma, Katherine Tulloh

as part of JT Project 09
at James Taylor Gallery, Collent Street, London E9 6SQ

14 October - 1 November 2009
Private View: Friday 16 October 6-10pm

JT Project 09 is open Monday to Sunday 12-6pm
(closed Mon 26 and Tues 27 October)

‘I am almost committing an indecency. I am trying to rip open the inconsolable secret in each one of you - the secret which hurts so much that you take your revenge on it by calling it names like Nostalgia and Romanticism and Adolescence... the secret we cannot hide and cannot tell though we desire to do both. We cannot tell it because it is a desire for something which has never actually appeared in our experience.’
C S Lewis

Lewis went on to name his ‘inconsolable secret’ sehnsucht and it is this indefinable allure of unspoken truths, heartache and longing that inspires Transition Gallery’s presentation for JT Project 09.

Sehnsucht presents a series of delicately constructed scenarios through which the viewer is invited to share a series of heart quivering sensations. These portals range from images of intense urban wilderness to washed out beautiful boys via Baudelaire’s Fleur du Mal and fragile Northern landscapes.

JT Project 09 comprises seven distinct temporary exhibitions by local artist-run organisations hosted by James Taylor Gallery within their vast Victorian warehouse. Exhibitions are independently organised by Fieldgate Gallery, Five Years, James Taylor Gallery, Katie Guggenheim, Supine Studios, The Centre of the Universe and Transition Gallery.

BODIES... L'Exposition - MONTRÉAL

C’est avec grand plaisir que vous êtes invité à BODIES… L’EXPOSITION, voyage au cœur du corps humain, au Centre d’exposition de Montréal, du 23 au 31 octobre 2009.

Profitez de l’opportunité de visiter cette exposition fortement anticipée, et comprendre la formidable machine qu’est le corps humain tout en découvrant de véritables corps, et parties de corps humains, méticuleusement disséqués et préservés grâce à un processus novateur.

Vous pourrez voir de près le squelette, la musculature, les appareils et systèmes reproducteur, respiratoire, circulatoire et autres du corps humain. Un bon nombre des corps sont présentés dans des poses athlétiques ou encore qui rappellent des activités quotidiennes. D'authentiques spécimens humains montrent aussi les dommages que cause le manque d'exercice ou le surplus de poids. Un poumon en santé et un poumon ravagé par le tabagisme apparaissent côte à côte, offrant ainsi un point de comparaison beaucoup plus éloquent qu'une image de manuel scolaire.

Cette exposition change la façon dont les gens se perçoivent et, ultimement, les amène à réfléchir et à adopter un mode de vie plus sain. Elle est conçue pour informer, habiliter, fasciner et inspirer.

À ce jour, plus de 15 millions de visiteurs à New York, Las Vegas, Washington, Londres, São Paulo, Barcelone, Athènes, Amsterdam, Vienne, Prague et Québec, ont été émerveillés par cet événement exceptionnel et c’est avec anticipation que nous voulions vous inviter à en faire partie.

Quand: Du 23 au 31 octobre 2009
Où: Au Centre d’Exposition de Montréal, 5e étage du Centre Eaton.
705 rue Ste-Catherine O., Montréal, Québec, Canada, H3B 4G5
