In September 2010, Wei-ling Gallery is pleased to present a much awaited solo exhibition by Anurendra Jegadeva.The exhibition entitled â€˜MY GOD IS MY TRUCK-Heroic Potraiture from the Far Side of Paradiseâ€™ has been in the making for the last two years and sees the artist presenting fifteen new painting installations.
With this new body of work, Anurendra Jegadeva has continued to develop a range of narrative tools in his works â€“ recurring motifs, text, color symbolism, the framing devices of temple carvers and stain-glass makers and comic book artists â€“ which are the vocabulary of a multifarious existence.
A Malaysian artist of Indian descent Anurendra Jegadeva has lived and worked in both Malaysia and Australia.With a broad perspective of home and the world beyond he deftly combine his views on the world with the autobiographical which stems from his own personal response to or experience of his subject/s. He strongly believes in the enduring power of the painted image, and has worked consistently over the last twenty years to forge effective and fresh narrative approaches to contemporary and historical themes.
Date : 13 Step – 13 Oct 2010
