BIOGRAPHY

Yamini Nayar makes large scale photographs from complex and elaborate sculptures she builds within her studio. Deeply inspired by architecture, urban communities and conceptions of modernity, Nayar employs a process-oriented approach to de-construct and redress visual associations attached to their histories. Her works suggest interior landscapes, psychological environments, still-lifes and at times the flatness of Cubist painting. Although seemingly devoid of the human presence, Nayar’s work investigates the tension between dimension and flatness, spatiality and the body. 

Nayar is based in Brooklyn, New York. Her work is included in numerous public and private collections, including the Guggenheim Museum, New York, the Art Institute, Chicago, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Massachusetts, the Cincinnati Art Museum, Ohio, Queens Museum, New York, Saatchi Gallery, London, Queensland Art Gallery, Australia, and United States Arts in Embassies, Washington, D.C.. Her work has been featured in publications including The New York Times, The New Yorker, Artforum, Art in America and Frieze, among others
