At the Artnet Gallery Network, we make it our goal to discover new artists each and every month, searching through the thousands of talented artists on our website and selecting a few we find particularly intriguing right now.
This February, we’re leaning into the spirit of love with five artists we just can’t get enough of, from a series of drawings inspired by One Thousand and One Nights to multi-media installations that explore the legacies of women’s work.
Check out our picks for this month below.
Guyanese-born, Denver-based artist Suchitra Mattai creates vibrantly colorful, textile-based multi-disciplinary sculptures and installations. These works explore histories of emigrations and colonialism and draw from her family’s own Indo-Caribbean heritage. In her first exhibition with Hollis Taggart, Mattai is presenting 12 mixed-media paintings, fiber sculptures, and installations. Through her intricate layering of found and vintage materials, Mattai connects herself to earlier these materials’ original creators, simultaneously collapsing together multiple heritages and eras.
