Sandeep Mukherjee

Sandeep MukherjeeSandeep Mukherjee

 

Born in India and based in Los Angeles, Mukherjee ('96) has exhibited at UCLA's Hammer Museum, Pomona College's Museum of Art, Pitzer College, MOCA/L.A., Margo Leavin, and Brennan & Griffin, N.Y.

video interview

"In fields of glowing color," writes Rebecca McGrew of Pomona College Museum of Art, "Mukherjee draws exquisitely rendered figures and forms that hover and float through an enigmatic space." She notes that Mukherjee "conflates Asian landscape painting conventions with a postmodern image of subjectivity as presented through shifting figure/ground relationships and the poetic ambiguity of the narrative content. [He] explore[s] phenomenological relations among light and space, to question traditional notions of representation, and to alter profoundly our expectations of art and consciousness."

Known for his mesmerizing, nuanced, ethereal, minimalist figurative works, Mukherjee fuses Indian techniques with his own sensibilities of fleeting spatial relationships punctuated by various materials and juxtaposed textures.

Mukherjee has had solo exhibitions at the Pomona Museum, Pitzer College, and Brennan & Griffin, N.Y. (2012). Group exhibitions include BravinLee programs, N.Y., the MAK Center at the Schindler House, and "Conversations," curated by Connie Butler at Museum of Contemporary Art, L.A..
