Surabhi Ghosh • Ditch Projects (3)

Surabhi Ghosh: Fields, April 20 – May 11, 2013. Installation view. Springfield, Oregon: Ditch Projects, 2013.

Deploying ubiquitous motifs such as circles, dots, hexagons, and stripes, Surabhi Ghosh draws on the liminal power of the decorative. Her work repurposes the disregarded visual information that permeates cultural spaces, hiding in plain sight. Composed of accumulative processes and simple repetitive marks, her pieces reside at the intersection of abstraction, minimalism, and ornamentation. Stitching and painting, she explores the way patterns build incrementally and unpredictably, resulting in a new kind of handmade geometry. Ghosh received an MFA in Fiber from Cranbrook Academy of Art and is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Oregon. She is a member of Ditch Projects and co-director of “Bailliwik,” an annual publication project. Her work and collaborative projects have been exhibited nationally and internationally, and her books are included in several collections worldwide.
