Dichotomy

Dichotomy, Sisam Bhandari 2015.

I aim to convey the divisions within myself, and also how I am perceived by others. Through the juxtaposition of concept and mediums used, Dichotomy reflects my internal conflicts in hopes it also discloses the clash that each of us continue face as humans.

Ibram Lassaw once said, “the conscious mind undoubtedly is a participant in the process. The work uses the artist to get itself born.” Nirvana relates to this quote and Lassaw’s piece, Space Loom XXIII that was on view at the Heckscher Museum of Art. Lassaw’s sculpture relates to the concept of continuity and infinity, which inspired me to create Nirvana that is infinite and intricately connected. In Nirvana, the telescope allows the soul to look to the infinite space developing its own hard wired connection with the universe.

Lucid Dreams, Graphite and dye

 

Lucid Dreams was inspired by Dream 28 (Grete Stern) from the exhibit of Modern Alchemy: Experiments in Photography at the Hechsher Museum. Dream 28 by Grete Stern comes from a series of 140 photomontages that illustrate the psychoanalysis of women’s fears and desires. I decided in my piece, Lucid Dreams, to make the focal point a self portrait in order to represent a void. It is where all the illustrations come from, which depicts my imaginations, fears and desires.
