Commenting on his upcoming exhibition, D. Ravi said, “As an artist, I have always been interested in landscapes. For my abstract art, I draw inspiration from the vivid colours in nature as I perceive them in a different way. Trees and birds are an integral part of nature and have always fascinated me. I see myriad forms in trees, while with birds - the flow of their feathers, the way they brood etc, continue to engage me. My inspiration for my latest collection is driven by nature in all its glory.” 

 

About D. Ravi & ‘A Dichotomic Tendency’

A dichotomic tendency marks the oeuvre of D. Ravi, comprising of both abstract paintings and drawings of a figurative nature. Ravi is known for his arrival from the Government College of Arts, Chennai, a school reputed for 'Line'. 'The Madras Movement', emanating from visionaries like his late father, S. Dhanapal stood as one of the pioneers of that significant movement. Ravi radiates the qualities of a sheer abstract painter, while the impact of the school reveal a total command over line as well. His systematically distorted meticulous drawings entail a flavor of metaphysics that include floating geometric forms, of voluptuous birds in motion within an earthy gravitational atmosphere of quietude. A symbolic reference to nature is beautifully fantasized by tree stumps in geometrical shapes, ferns and fronds; making the totality of the composition meandering. The perfect rendering and line in contrasting muted colours lend charm to his linear compositions. His pure abstractions repudiate form content in a way that appear stellar in perception, while eliciting a conscious reality of effulgent ethereal light.
