Catalogue Note

'The invisible forces at work all around us, such as gravity and time, are Balasubramaniam's major obsessions. His drawings, prints, and paintings particularly reflect his concerns with the passage of time and change... Gravity (2006), a fiberglass and acrylic cast of his face suspended from a peg and plunging down toward the ground, evokes the invisible but omnipresent force that governs motion and life on this earth.' (Majumdar, M., 'Uncharted Territories: Alwar Balasubramaniam', Sculpture, Washington D.C., December 2008, pp.36-39)
