Catalogue Essay: Nancy Adajania


A solitary male figure bearing the rigour of spiritual discipline tonsured of mundane superfluities regarding name and location, inhabits the space of Ebenezer Sunder Singh’s paintings. And yet, the figure isn’t a detached archetypal motif, but a projection of the artist’s embodied self. Ebenezer uses his own body as a measure of his expression, allowing it soar only lo be grounded by its reflection: embracing a cosmic totality only lo be cut by the swirling swathe of death.
