Magic and Loss

Ragini Bhow’s work addresses the nature of seeing, illusion, and the human perception of reality. By altering the familiar into the unfamiliar, she is able to traverse an ambiguous space that raises questions on what it means to view nature from the identity of a terrestrial. Her practice explores material relationships that develop from aesthetic observation, visceral exchange, and conversation. Through juxtapositions of man-made elements with the found organic, such as wood and neon light, she transforms the mundane into sacred artifacts that face an alternate dimension.
