Drawing on her background as a scientist and experience as an immigrant, artist Rina Banerjee (b. 1963 in India, based in New York City) creates richly textured works that complicate the role of objects as representations of cultures. By juxtaposing organic and plastic objects -- such as combining ornate textiles and animal forms with tourist souvenirs -- she concocts fairytale worlds that are both enticing and subtly menacing.
