Posted on March 1, 2017 by School of Art

b88d5d685a27b7261b19b1a9ffebb0a7For over a decade Sandeep Mukherjee‘s work has explored the notion of abstracting as a means to image a particular aspect of flowing matter. Working in painting, drawing and installation, the work has been process oriented and improvisational. Following multiple paths of inquiry such as imaging the performing body, subtracting the material body and enfolding the architectural body, the work continues to explore the relationship between process, affect and image. Mukherjee received an MFA from UCLA, and a BFA from Otis College of Art and Design, Los Angeles. His works are in numerous public collections, including those of MOCA, Los Angeles; MOMA, New York; LACMA; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, New Delhi and the Jumex Collection, Mexico City.

large grid of colorsAmanda Ross-Ho will be speaking at the Carpenter Center on Tuesday, November 15th at 5pm. Amanda Ross-Ho’s work is inspired by detritus: the clutter and remnants of daily existence, and the ‘negative space’ of things over looked. Ranging from sculpture, installation, painting, and photography, her work seeks to uncover the subtle beauty of coincidence and anomaly. Working from source material as diverse as newspaper articles, narcotics agency records, life aspiration manuals, and home-craft instruction booklets, Ross-Ho highlights points of cultural ‘intersection’ to create extrinsic portraits of contemporary zeitgeist.
