Kanika Sircar’s work focuses on the aesthetic and visual impact of writing. Her imagery is based upon words, texts, calligraphy or graffiti layered onto forms that allude to the contexts of such images: envelopes, manuscript pages or murals.

Spare and elegant, the vessels and wall pieces in this exhibit have complex surfaces, stained with slips and marked with carving tools, pencils and iron oxide prints, expressing messages of thought and intention that may be comprehended, misinterpreted or partially perceived. The inscriptions and letters are often fragmentary and indecipherable, palimpsests of color, shape and meaning attacked by time.

Kanika Sircar lives and works in the Washington, DC area. Currently a partner at the Waverly Street Gallery, she has exhibited nationally and internationally.
