Following on from major sculptural commissions for The Art Gallery of New South Wales, HOTA and Dark MOFO, Ramesh has transformed the ground floor gallery into a carnival of mythological creatures sculpted in ceramic and dripping with glaze.

Produced in Ramesh’s signature neo-expressionist style, these figures extend upon his unconventional, irreverent approach to the medium. Varying in size, the works demonstrate the elaborate building and glazing strategies Ramesh has experimented with over the past year.

 The [guardian] figures’ allusions to ideas around regeneration, renewal and even collapse are particularly pertinent in our current global climate defined by social, environmental and public health shifts/upheaval'.
