Shivanjani Lal Tour

Materially led, and tactile. The artists and works in my selection drew me to them by their use of materials to share the artists ideas about the world in big, small, critical and urgent ways. I am always drawn by stories, particularly stories that evoke environments, or tell me something I have no knowledge of or can’t access. To me the works by these artists created authentic stories through paint, objects and photo images. They felt familiar even though they were unknown to me. I’m excited to see them develop as they move out of school and into exhibiting more widely. Congratulations on such a huge accomplishment.
