Surendran Nair "pernoctation 2.the wounded majesty ,or, the anatomy of fate (cuckoonebulopolis)" 2008
Surendran Nair creates masterful paintings, with elaborate titles to match. This piece in particular gives me the happy-shudders. It's such a moving and rich depiction of the chakras, and of the experience of mystical transcendence. I am particularly in awe of how brilliantly he captured the serpentine motion of flames. Be sure to check out his terrific, Schiele-esque drawings as well.
