Bharti Kher is of Indian descent who studied fine art in the UK and went back to india to work on her art.
Bharti's Artworks are based in gender and culture of both western society and India's cultural heritage.
the work above is a cast resin sculpture and one of two in the show, UWA managed to secure these and other works ahead of Bharti's Sydney Bienalle for the PIAF program and Bharti's first Solo show in WA.
The other works are made from the Sari and the bindi(dots) that adorn Indian womens head between the eyes, these paintings are colurfull and engaging, while pillars in another gallery are adorned and posed sari's appear to be human like sculptures that have been set in resin to keep the form and preserve the shapes.
