Nandini Bagla Chirimar

Nandini Chirimar through her drawings of material and objects documents memory and loss. Her representation acts as an autobiographical account where on paper, she instils maps, vegetation, architecture, letters, photographs and different kinds of curios. Her works provide an alternate view of still life, which subsequently is no longer only a still-life but a memory preserved on paper. Sensitively, she observes and absorbs the elements that define her life which ultimately find a valuable space in the composition she constructs.

Nandini has shown her work at many international venues, including Twelve Gates Gallery, Philadelphia; Queens Museum of Art, New York; Ganges Art Gallery, Kolkata; India Art Fair, New Delhi, Loft at Lower Parel, Mumbai; Exhibit 320 Gallery, New Delhi; Allen Gallery, New York; Centre for International Modern Art (CIMA), Kolkata; Ono Gallery, Tokyo; Art Museum, Virginia; AHAF Art Fair, Korea; SLICK II Art Fair, Paris; and in Erasing Borders Travelling Exhibitions.

Her work is in many public and private collections, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, US Department of State, Art in Embassies Program, RPG Collection and Bucks County Esthetics Center.

She also, teaches at several venues in Manhattan, including the EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Studio and Manhattan Graphics Center.

Nandini was awarded the prestigious Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant in 2016.

The artist lives and works in New York.
