Ashvini Ray’s work merges soft, rounded contours with taut, tightly stressed surfaces to produce works whose materiality reflects the gradual self-manifestation of natural forms. Through a process of the stretching and straining of man-made materials and the use of repetition which aims to infiltrate entire spaces, the work gives a sense of organically coming into existence. Pressure and force converge with a defiance of gravity resulting in a body of work which appears infinitely extendable.

This flirtation with infinite self-manifestation not only recalls the process by which a cell divides and seeks to re-create itself but comfortably fits within the conceptual parameters of synaptic function in the brain, the pathways created unconsciously by the individual in order to assemble time and place. Ray deliberately focuses on aesthetics, leaving the works conceptually open. It is this conceptual openness which forces the viewer to negotiate their own pathways of association and traverse their own endlessly mutable synaptic function in order to create an individual reading.
