Rina Banerjee, Within a New and Robust Capitalism the Sword, the Ugly and Resistant Oyster…, 2007


Rina Banerjee creates complex, sketch-like paintings that consist of intricately detailed images of strange creatures enacting folkloric tales from foreign lands. Her large sculptures and almost inhabitable installations are similarly made up of exquisite details, which convey a sense of displaced cultural identity.
