Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran: In the Beginning

Pertinent use of University of Melbourne's museum collections to add snap and sparkle to Ramesh's magpie-like assemblage of stuff. 

 

A panopoly of materials and joyfully self referential and neo-expressionist outpouring across all surface. 

 

Hyper-fun, combined with layers of cultural and history of art references hidden amidst the jetsom.
