Shobha Broota: Resonance
Aug 02-Sep 08
The current exhibition spans the past decade of the artist's practice, and is comprised, in equal parts, of work in Shobha Broota's two most iconic styles. First, her sublime and deceptively complex meditations in oil and acrylic on canvas, usually focused around a central non-figurative element, that simultaneously reflect both an inner spiritual journey and an ongoing exploration of the cosmic or tantric. And second, a series of ''woven paintings'', featuring meticulously patterned arrangements of wool on canvas that appear to vibrate and shimmer with a transcendental quality suggesting vast but subtly interconnected worlds. Press Preview & V.I.P. Reception: Thu, Aug 2, 6-8pm.
