Saravanan Parasuraman

Indian, born 1982

Crafting understated organic forms out of humble materials, like steel ball bearings, sand, and fiberglass, Saravanan Parasuraman produces sculptures and works on canvas through which he explores such lofty, philosophical themes as fate, the human condition, and the lifelong process of self-realization. Drawing upon his South Indian heritage, Parasuraman is guided by the teachings of Vedantic Hindu philosophy, concerned with the journey towards self-knowledge and the nature of reality. These abstract concepts are expressed concretely in works like Whatever Has Happened, Has Happened Good (2012). In this work, Parasuraman presents a delicate, fiberglass crab pinned to a canvas with hundreds of strands of fishing line, representative of the web of experiences and knowledge that shapes and binds us as we progress through life.
