"Investigation"
by sabine7 / June 15, 2007
The animal component of Shibu Natesan’s paintings, as we saw yesterday, lends a certain air to the atmosphere of his paintings. But when removed, or simply not present, the tone becomes somehow even more surreal instead of less so. Natesan’s scenes seem suspended in time, hushed even when peopled. Serious work is taking place in the Investigation, yet in a void of sorts. The white-frocked ladies playing bowls in the Moonlight Players appear ghostly, though quite solid. An untitled city streetscape is well lit, but eerily quiet. And yet, mysterious as they may be, these paintings are not cold and off-putting. We want to slip inside the frame.
