Sheela Gowda (Bhadravati, Karnataka, India, 1957; lives and works in Bangalore) is one of the leading names in contemporary art in India.

The book presents, in addition to two new productions, a wide selection of works she has made from 1992 to the present time, including watercolors, prints, and site-specific installations. The latters are distinguished by a large variety of materials, such as hair, organic substances, cow dung, incense, and natural pigments.

After studying at Ken School of Art and Visva-Bharati University (India), Gowda deepened her research on painting at the Royal College of Art in London. Her work ranges from drawing, to sculpture, to large-scale installation, and involves the use of materials that often convey cultural values linked to the context they stem from. The artist’s works, characterized by a strong spatial dimension, assume elements of Modernism as a starting point, elaborated by the artist via production processes featuring strong ritualistic references.

The emphasis on process can also be linked to local traditions of craft and the implicit role of labor in making art.

NuriaEnguita is an art historian and curator. From 1991 to 1998 she worked as a curator at IVAM, Valencia. Enguita-Mayo was chief curator at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Barcelona from 1998 to 2008.

Lucia Aspesi is Curatorial Researcher of HangarBicocca, Milan.
