For Saravanan, change is the only unchanging thing, which becomes a recurring theme in his work. He traces the progress of ant holes, mud hills, umbra’s, penumbras and other transitional/ transformational phenomena, which are guide to the ever changing play of nature, material, form and light. There is both a comfort here with diversity in material and diversity in re-stating experience, which undoubtedly, is the strength of his work.
