This exhibition of new works by Sri-Lankan born artist Rajni Perera features a large-scale mural, and a series of paintings that cross-translate between the visual languages of Indian miniaturist art, Blaxploitation, and the images produced by the Hubble Deep Field Telescope. Floating between Western and Immigrant culture, the work creates an interesting East-West dialogue of ideas, concerning immigrant identity issues, female sexuality and science fiction and fantasy.
