Ranjani Shettar’s High Tide For A Blue Moon | Dr Bhau Daji Lad Museum

Medha Kapur of Saffronart shares a note on Ranjani Shettar’s first solo museum exhibition in India. 

Ranjani ShettarMumbai: Born in 1977, Ranjani Shettar, a young artist from Bangalore, lives and works in Karnataka. Shettar’s solo exhibition High Tide For A Blue Moon is currently on display at the Bhau Daji Lad Museum (December 2, 2012 –  February 17, 2013).  This exhibition marks the artist’s first museum solo exhibition in India and her first exhibition in Mumbai. Over half the works exhibited here are on view for the first time in India, including major new works from the last two years.

Her sculptural installations are beautiful, poetic and have charmed critics and collectors all over the world. These large installations draw inspiration from natural forms and materials recalling the surreal beauty of magical creatures and sensuous landscapes. Shettar roots her practice using local materials like fishing lines, muslin, tamarind kernel powder paste and wooden beads handmade by toy craftsmen from South India.
