The large drawings were begun in New Delhi, India in 2007 and are the result of ten years of the process accumulation and reduction. The gallery conversation with him will be Saturday, September 30, 2017, 11am-12:30pm.

The  New Gallery of Modern Art is also presenting their inaugural solo show with Aurora Robson. For Anthroposcenery, she has created a series of new wall-hanging collages and cluster sculpture. The title is an adjective meaning “relating to or denoting the current geological age, viewed as the period during which human activity has been the dominant influence on climate and the environment.”

“I aim to communicate with people regardless of their socio-economic status, culture, degree of education, age, religion, or race with a message of personal and universal potentiality and reverence,” she says. “My practice is an open invitation. I intentionally create work to be suggestive as opposed to representational. I focus on correlations.”
Don’t miss this dynamic exhibit as it runs through Fall 2017.
