Studying inherent violence

Vasudevan Akkitham, presents a solo show titled Grid of Fire intended to be a response to the violence that has become a part of our existence. The show, which consists of large and small works, portrays the world of animals to narrate a doomsday tale. The habitat of animals and the future environment of human beings have been depicted in the paintings, with an emphasis on the fact that widespread destruction is in the offing. Set in an imaginary burning jungle, stories unfold like narratives. What makes this imagination contemporary is the way in which they are morphed in to urban settings.
