Sumer presents On Chroma by Areez Katki, a series of tableaus that survey the psychological resonances of colour and form through modes of mark making and abstraction. The works regenerate Katki’s thread of ethno-social implications, where a holistic craft materiality is employed through the process of needlework executed over hand-woven textiles.
In this case, the ground is a custom-handwoven Ikat khadi, where both weft and warp threads were designed to correspond with selected emotional cues from a theosophical colour chart. An introspective analysis of phenomenological studies has led Katki to further mine the depths of memory in a childhood home, which have been filtered through abstractions of non-linguistic mark making.
