Pranam: recent works by Sophie Saunders



Accomplished Waikanae artist Sophie Saunders continues her use of simple geometric shapes in her new MAHARA iti exhibition: Pranam. But she adds a respectful bow to Indian culture, Hindu tradition and a reaffirmation that she sees her work as an ongoing “pilgrimage”, with colour and light as her steadfast companions. “I'm really interested in the way simple geometric forms are common in Indian Ritual Art,” she says.

Pranam is Sophie Saunders’s third solo exhibition with Mahara Gallery.


It will show at MAHARA iti until 17 February 2023, with an artist’s floor-talk on Wednesday 8 February at 11am.
