Edition of 1500

Bharti Kher's work encompasses painting, sculpture and installation. Among her signature materials, she uses ready-made, colored vinyl bindis to create spectacularly vibrant paintings. The bindi takes its name from the Sanskrit word “bindu,” or dot. Since first appearing in her work in 1995, the bindi has telegraphed aesthetic and cultural duality, and a means to mix the superficial with the sublime.

Based in New Delhi, India, since 1993, Bharti Kher was born in 1969 in London to parents who had migrated from India to the United Kingdom as adults. She studied painting, graduating in 1991 from Newcastle Polytechnic. In 1992 she traveled to India, deciding to live there permanently. Kher's practice is radically heterogeneous, encompassing painting, sculpture and installation. Overarching themes within her work include the notion of the self as a multiple and culture's openness to misinterpretation. She exploits the drama inherent in objects, tapping into mythologies and the numerous diverse associations a thing can bring.
