Kesara Ratnavibhushana captures the essence and inspiration which becomes Book 1: The Unfolding Tesseract. A tactile and visual narrative that explores the expression of emotion through colour and how it combines to reflect the influence of the 4 leading female figures of his life. The layers of emotions, personal encounters, relationship and impression each unique, as unique as each fibre and yarn that spun together create the bonding strength.
"This body of work is a construct of colour, the artwork's construction illustrates the connection and influence of each woman and how they ultimately fold together to add strength and meaning to my life", Kesara Ratnavibhushana (Jan 2022)
