Artists >> Chowdry Anita
My overarching interests are in classical and non-euclidean geometries as the underlying principles of design, natural form and aesthetics. I am also interested in the history and evolution of material technologies. My work ranges from large interactive installations to intimate studies and drawings, and includes research into book-arts, mineral pigments and metal-based technologies.
