Art Feature > Bharti Kher’s surreal sculptures
It is difficult walking away from Bharti Kher’s work without having a strong reaction to it. She commands it. Using animals and natural forms, Kher creates conversation pieces that seem so lifelike and yet so ominous. The central motif seen in most of her work is the Indian Bindi, the dot. It gives her fiberglass sculptures an eerie texture that leaves one dizzy.
Her international showcase includes ‘Indian Summer: Contemporary Art in India’, Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts, Paris, in 2005, and solo shows – New York, New Delhi, Amsterdam and Bangalore. Born in London, she now lives and works in New Delhi.
