Pouring Red installation detail 2019
Nayar-Gall’s works are global narratives of marginalization, patriarchy, and misogyny, presented in installation, 2-D media, craft, and film media, connected to social activism. Born of mixed north and south Indian parentage, married an African-Caribbean, mother of bi-racial children, lived and worked in three global regions: these realities personalize what may be an abstract experience of marginalization. A professional printmaker, Indrani, unpacks traditional codes expressed through the parallel constraints of media, and transcending the barriers they impose. Her work has been included in curated shows: the Perez Museum, Queen Museum, Asian Arts Initiative, Mint Museum, Christie’s Midtown Manhattan, and others. “Jan Serr & John Shannon”, F.W. Mestre Collection of Caribbean Art, Elon University, among others, include her work.
Indrani earned her MFA in experimental printmaking from Visva Bharati University, and a Graduate Certificate in contemporary non-toxic printmaking from Rochester Institute of Technology. She worked as the area coordinator of printmaking at Barbados Community College, adjunct faculty at Western Michigan University and University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She is a recipient of Gilmore Emerging Artist Grant through Arts Council of Kalamazoo, Chancellor’s Diversity Challenge Fund, UNC Charlotte, NC, Regional Artist Project Grant, Arts & Science Council, Mecklenburg County, NC. She has had solo and small group show at Cleveland State University, Elon University, Row Gallery at University of North Carolina at Charlotte and other.
