Phoenix Art Space
23 March - 21 April 2019
Siddharth Gadiyar is an extraordinary image maker. His paintings often take 2-3 hours to complete, in which time Sid is completely focused. This is highly unusual and unlike other areas of his life. Sid’s clear intention and his swift decisive action result in these bold and beautiful images that are full of purpose and free from self-conscious restraint.
Project Art Works is artist led organisation based in Hastings working with children, young people and adults who have complex support needs. Through a personalised and holistic approach, the studio programmes and outreach projects provide freedom and purpose through art. The studio is a place where events and happenings unfold revealing the essential abilities and nature of all those involved.
'Sid is calm and focused when he is making work at Project Art Works. Art and painting have such a huge, tremendous, positive impact on his otherwise chaotic, challenging and complex world of Autism.'
Susmitha, Siddharth’s mother.
