Breakfast before Wedding (2008) By S. Ravi Shankar
These two 'hipster' birds appear in chatty conversation. Their bodies face each other yet one bird's face is turned away as if speaking about something off-page.

Kudallur may describe this as a 'red' but it is clear that the abstract painting is so much more.
Untitled II (Red abstract) (2007) By Achuthan Kudallur
A personal favourite of the Director, this work stands out in as a particularly ferocious image of the world in disarray and sunken under the sea. Fire breathes from the waters as we look fatefully at the state of our world.
Under the Sea By P. Jayakani
Aparajithan invokes a graphic, almost poster-like quality to his art, his content often having a simplicity and immediacy. He deliberately resists the temptation to be too painterly in works such as ÔAcross LinesÕ (2005), concentrating on profundity through simplicity: here a bird flies awkwardly straight downwards to meet with its beak an approaching fish swimming straight upwards. They meet at the waterÕs angular surface, two creatures of air and water, normally predator and prey, normally separated by their different worlds.
Across Lines (2005) By Aparajithan Adimoolam
Woman I & II are conceived as a pair though painted as separate works. Facing in different directions, the women is a classic depiction of a Selvaraj lady: her hair curly, buxom-breasted, elongated eye slits and adorned with jewellery. The works have an ethereal quality in the way the sitters merge and emerge from the background.
Woman I (2008) By A. Selvaraj
One of only two tempera paintings in The Noble Sage Collection, this stands out as a representation of Indian history as well as an important work in South Indian art history.
