The work of artist Priya Chohan is set to go on display in Lichfield.

The exhibition – titled Their Specific Reality – is taking place at the Wedge Gallery at South Staffordshire College’s Lichfield campus and will form part of the 52 Weeks of Art project.

Speaking on her website, Priya said:

“The premise of my work lies in the physicality and processes of material, using wax, clay, lead and graphite to make organic forms.  I work across painting and sculpture and am interested in the expanded notion of what drawing can be: sculpture, an action and a thought.

“I’m interested in philosophies about mapping and time, in the ephemeral and in the traces of actions. Particularly, I have been looking at the repetitive motion of the water, the tides of the river and how this refers to my own ideas about the notion of time passing.

“I am fascinated with the idea of archiving and creating objects from repetitive, natural elements, which by their nature cannot be archived.  I strive for a purity of form, resulting in line becoming object and expression.”

Priya’s exhibition takes place at the Wedge Gallery at The Friary venue from March 1 to 26.
