For over a decade, Sandeep Mukherjee’s work has been exploring the concept of abstracting as a means to image, carve or slice a particular aspect of flowing matter. The artist’s work in painting, drawing and installation is process-oriented and improvisational. Following multiple paths of inquiry, such as translating the performing body, subtracting the material body and folding the architectural body, the work explores the relationship between process, affect and image.
