MRINALINI MUKHERJEE

1949, Bombay (present-day Mumbai), India

A committed sculptor whose work is characterized by intuitive practice, Mukherjee explores the gap between figuration and abstraction. Nature is the main inspiration for the artist who integrates craft techniques with a modernist visual vocabulary. Her works, made entirely by hand with different fibres and processes, take unusual, mysterious, sexual and, at times, grotesque and disturbing forms. Imbued with a powerful and contemporary ethic, her sculptures go beyond any distinctions between traditional and modern.
