Passages

New Ceramics by Kanika Sircar 

October 4 - November 7,  2020

In Passages, Kanika Sircar examines ideas of inclusion, rejection, and freedom. A series of stoneware Doors broodingly allude to entrances and barriers, while porcelain Dancers, abstract feminine forms, suggest escape through bodily autonomy. These thought-provoking sculptural vessels are handbuilt or thrown, their surfaces graphic and painterly, colors layered with maps, marks, and textual fragments of Sanskrit laws or medieval Indian poetry.
