R. Baala (b.1970)
R. Balasubramanian known as Baala.R, is a renowned freelance artist who completed
his Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1990 and then obtained his Master of Fine Arts in 1999
from the Govt. College of Arts & Crafts, Madras University.
Initially he focused on the contemporary mode, oil on canvas and relief works and
simultaneously experimented with etchings. From 1995 to 2000 he worked on
etching prints. Some of these works, finished in sculptural manner using various
types of printmaking techniques, have been prominently installed. He continues
with this mode to date. As these works consist of innumerable materials cumulated
together with a maximal approach, they are time consuming. His works can be
defined as “Works with innumerable materials cumulated in maximum simplicity creating works of art with maximum complexity”.
Baala.R utilizes the vagaries of material forms, with their own skill, enhancing their
multi-dimensionality to blossom themselves in the fundamental concept. It is also
an attempt to establish the reality that art forms a bridge between spirituality
and science; which means a material manifestation of an interface between the
realization of ‘truth’ and the guidance to objective practices.
