Artist of the Month: Madhvi Subrahmanian
"Seedpod" installation, currently showing at Platform Projects' space in Gillman Barracks.

December's Artist of the Month is Mumbai-born, Singapore-based sculptor Madhvi Subrahmanian. Madhvi's works are currently exhibited at Gillman Barracks (22 Lock Road, Singapore 108939) until 11 December 2015, in collaboration with Platform Projects and the launch of Art India in Singapore. 

Madhvi breaks away from the traditional notion of ceramics. Her works expand into the sculptural pushing from a vessel reference to the large scale, affecting and altering the space they occupy. Having lived in three continents and in four countries, she belongs to a world where change is the only constant. Inspired and affected by the challenges of new opportunities and limitations brought by new circumstances, incubation, growth and movement find repeated expression in her works. Organic, earthy and sensual, Madhvi’s work balances between disparate ideas of fragility and strength. Built with coils that cradle and encircle one another, that are supportive and emergent, relaxed yet taut the forms seek to address issues of opposing forces. They contemplate and question the dual nature of existence.

 

Born in Mumbai India, Madhvi Subrahmanian started her career with Ray Meeker and Deborah Smith at the Golden Bridge Pottery in Pondicherry. Golden Bridge is a production pottery and a clay art center where students from all over India come to learn the craft of clay.
