K. S. Radhakrishnan is one of the most notable among the new generation of sculptors who has successfully brought about a definitive resurgence in Indian sculpture. Like many of his contemporaries he is a figurative sculptor, but his preference for modelling and bronze casting over new materials sets him apart from the rest of them. Recharging age-old sculptural processes with a new sensibility, thus is the singular challenge he brings to modern Indian sculpture. And this makes him a modernist - who approaches his work with discernable ambition and considerable aplomb while steering clear of brinkmanship.
With celebration of sensuality as one of its running themes, his work is at once both intimate and universal in its appeal. A personal commemorative sculpture, with a scale and presence that holds well in natural settings, his work has found permanent home in a number of public collections all over the world.
This book exhaustively illustrated with beautifully shot photographs by well known photographers and accompanied by an insightful text by R. Siva Kumar, brings into focus, Rakhakrishnan's work of the last 20 years.
