Tiled & Looped, a solo exhibition by Surabhi Ghosh, opens Friday October 3rd, 6-9pm at Manifold. Surabhi Ghosh creates complex compositions through the accumulation of simple decorative motifs, revealing intersections among abstraction, minimalism, and ornamentation. In Tiled & Looped, Ghosh will show work from two ongoing series. In these series, she uses hand-cutting techniques to negate the function of a utilitarian material (upholstery vinyl), while expanding her speculative understanding of the relationships between pattern, repetition, and decoration. On view and open to the public October 4 – November 7, 2014 on Fridays, 12-6pm at Manifold, 4426 N Ravenswood Ave, Chicago IL.
