Tying down time brings together for the first time Arpita Singh’s predominantly abstract compositions on paper, principally reliant on line to create an aesthetic bridge linking the early works with her better-known figurative paintings since the mid-1980s. The works created from 1973 to 1982 allow a rare insight into the formal foundations of Singh’s oeuvre, revealing both a serious curiosity about line, depth and space, and a playful improvisation—a willingness to suspend certainty in the search for new.
