Flow Into Me, 2000

Ranjani Shettar’s work, inspired by nature and drawn from experience, combines movement in form and content in which exacting lines sculpted in space are invested with the attributes of the employed materials. Traversing her installations one experiences their exceptional beauty and fortitude of engineering while gently becoming aware of their all so human spirit. One notices this in the resilience of the pods in their search for light in Heliotropes, or the uplifting benevolence imbued in Hoomalae.

On view will be two new installations. Heliotropes (2005-2006), a collection of linear forms, hand sewn and molded from latex in a playful suspension, occupies considerable air space in the north gallery, and appears to swim towards the light pouring in from the windows. Hoomalae (2005), in the second gallery, is a delicate and intricate lattice of colored threads and hand molded beeswax; its five crescent structures rise from the floor, weaving an intricate courtship that seems to converge just beyond our sight.
