The works of international artist, Ranjani Shettar, have been spreading round the globe like wildfire.
Born and working in Bangalore, India, Shettar works with natural materials like fabric, wax and wood, while also employing processed man-made materials like silicone and stainless steel.
In the last three years she has been featured in the Lyon Biennial in France, the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and most recently at the 10th Liverpool Biennial in England. Her work is represented by the Talwar Gallery in New York.
An installation in the SFMOMA I was so lucky to see last year!
This piece entitled “Sun-sneezers blow light bubbles” is made from muslin and tamarind powder.
You can view these pieces in the permanent collection at the SFMOMA in their new rooftop garden. The basket-like forms are made from recycled metal taken from junkyard cars.
