Studies in form, a collaborative body of work with photographer Randhir Singh, comprises a series of cyanotype prints that build on a long-term interest in concepts of architectural scale and sculptural intent.
These photographs focus on the repetitive, sculptural qualities of the state, the lipped balconies and the concrete vents that look like funnels on the ship.
About the Artists
Seher Shah’s practice uses experiences from the field of art and architecture to think about space, landscape, objects and aesthetics through drawing, printmaking and sculpture. Her work draws through scale shifts between the individual to architecture, personal memory to collective historical events and the transformation of symbols and spaces.
Randhir Singh spent 15 years working in New York City at several award-winning architecture and design firms while taking photography classes. His practice draws on his education as an architect with a focus on issues related to architecture and urbanism.
Seher Shah and Randhir Singh’s Artist’s Room at Jameel Arts Centre featured two major works: a three-part graphite drawing, Emergent structures: relative noise, planar landscape and capital mass, and Studies in form. The work was exhibited from Mach 7 to June 8, 2019.
