  • About

    N.N Rimzon studied at the college of Fine Arts, Trivandrum from 1975 and in 1984 completed a Masters in Fine Arts (sculpture) at the University of Baroda. His work approaches the metaphysical subjects of birth, life and death with a rich vocabulary of symbols and metaphors. Free from religious iconography or undertones his work exhibits a distinctly personal response to questions on the meaning of life. N.N. Rimzon says; 'There is of course, the will. The will to integrate with the world, the will to change the world, to invent a new culture, a new society, to perhaps give new meaning to life. But the paradox is that the will controls neither death nor dying. And, after all, a work of art is all about death and life.'1
