PURE WATER - EIGHT GLASSES & A QUARTER, 2002 (Detail)

Talwar Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of major new paintings by Anjum Singh.  This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in New York.

On exhibit are six large paintings created over the last year by the artist. Bright and bold, the canvases are dominated by textured patterns; the honeycombed and rectangular blocks create an environment of a bustling metropolis, structured and ubiquitous. Vessels appear revealing contents full of life or at other times empty, reflecting their surroundings. The compositions, permeated with repeated outlines of objects or interspersed with stenciled text, create a visceral beckoning of the works, accentuated by the larger than life yet intricate painterly rendering of her layered compositions.

FLY (Detail)

Anjum Singh’s oeuvre draws from the rituals of daily life, from the visible commercialization imbibed by consumers to the forsaken and hidden vestibules of urban living. Using objects, words, textures and delectable colors the artist investigates the transformative power of our surroundings: as it isolates us, protects us, horrifies us and shapes us day in and day out, constantly. Situating her work at the threshold between the individual and collective, the pure and impure, the inside and outside, she explores urban permeability as well as our vulnerability.
