Sydney-based artist Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran has been busy working on ‘Mud men’, a new installation of five large-scale ceramic sculptures commissioned specifically for the NGA. Raw, grungy and wildly embellished, these ‘contemporary deities’ provoke discussions about religion, sexuality, patriarchy and identity with a strong dose of humour. Get a sneak peek at the works in progress on Ramesh’s instagram @rams_deep69 – less than a month to go!
