Description

About the artwork
Woman I & II are conceived as a pair though painted as separate works. Facing in different directions, the women is a classic depiction of a Selvaraj lady: her hair curly, buxom-breasted, elongated eye slits and adorned with jewellery. The works have an ethereal quality in the way the sitters merge and emerge from the background.

About A. Selveraj

It is hard to believe that Selveraj's interests did not always lie with art. His paintings seem to flow from his consciousness into his brush and then onto the canvas with no interruption or falter like a great river spilling over a waterfall. In fact, Selveraj entered the arts through a love of dance, especially classical Indian dance. It was in his school in Gudiyattam, a suburb of Chennai, that dance 'happened' to him. The town was a famous nurturing ground for painters and sculptors though, in Selveraj, it was to give birth to a performer - a performer in his dancing, a performer-creator in his painting.

His parents, humble farmers, paid for a good education toward a life in engineering. Selveraj had other ideas. He took part in dramas and dance recitals and, in the evenings, would even compose and conduct his own with other children. All the time, instead of studying engineering, Selveraj was dedicating himself completely (and secretly) to his drawing and painting.
