Catalogue published in conjunction with the exhibition 'Six Degrees of Separation: Chaos, Congruence and Collaboration' at Red Dot Gallery, Pitta Kotte, Sri Lanka in 2008. It forms part of the South Asian Artists' Network Development Artists Program of Theertha International Artists Collective in collaboration with Red Dot Gallery. The work of the six Sri Lankan artists featured reflect the changes in contemporary art trends from the 90s up to the present, with the benefit of involvement in international art exchanges. "While Sarath Kumarasiri, Pradeep Chandrasiri and Koralegedera Pushpakumara are closer to the initial nuances, visual representations and thematics of the 90s Trend, Anura Krishantha, Pala Pothupitiya and Thisath Thoradeniya represent the new generation of artists whose work have evolved to take the same trend as a point of departure. The latter belongs to the same generation of artists whose repertoire of visual language, the conceptual formulations and artist personas had the opportunity to negotiate and absorb globalized images, international art trends and art market possibilities in addition to the local cultural and political dynamics." - excerpt from introductory text.

This material was collected by the Sri Lanka Archive of Contemporary Art, Architecture & Design, and donated to Asia Art Archive as part of the programme ‘Mobile Library: Sri Lanka’ in 2013.
