~SUMAKSHI SINGH . . . the green light that means: GO !!
when green is alive, and ‘bio-full’, and sings with the light of . . HOPE, and new growth.
and, reminds us . . of when even Persian miniatures – were of a most . . . BEAUTIFUL NATURE, even the fierce ones.

an “interactive, multi-media installation that plays with perspective to create the illusion of a manuscript book, in which viewers see themselves and others moving about as miniature characters.”

the first, and only time I met Sumakshi Singh (and got to see her work in person) was at her debut NYC solo show: ‘Lumps, Bumps and Things that are Art’, 2006 – in Chelsea, at the now defunct Van Harrison Gallery.
the show held out a lot of promise, and a very light, light hand . . in both the painting, and the actual site specific installation – and esp re: a very ‘bio-beautiful’ – ‘future vision’ . . . for things to come.
