Vasudha Thozhur

Vasudha Thozhur took up a residency at Gasworks for 3 months in the summer of 1996. The Secret Life of Objects interprets the human presence as pervasive and extending beyond individual lifetime; materialised, in a sense, through objects of use, consumption and reverence, essential to the everyday rites of passage.

Vasudha Thozhur
lives in India and studied painting at the College of Arts and Crafts, Madras and The School of Art and Design, Croydon. In 1996 Thozhur was an artists-in-residence at Cite Internationales des Arts, Paris and has exhibited in group shows such as The New South and East Goes West in the UK

"If song could be connived of as the penetration of the tongue into the orifice of the ear, painting is the thrust and imprint of body upon body, in encounters of varying intensity and duration."
Vasudha Thozhur, London, July 1996

"Colour is at times crude and bright, sometimes moving into more offbeat hues and monochromatic area. The language of the images appears quite straightforward, referring with the clear pointers of the titles, to the objects, dreams and enticement of everyday, urban domestic life."
