Route, Rut, Lane: A Karkhana Collaboration

 

A continually evolving contemporary and conceptual mixed media project that was inspired by the historical Mughal workshop that produced elaborate miniatures. A select group of 8 artists (S. Portico Bowman, Carlyn M. Clark, Johnny Fox, Margaret Lazzari, Luke Reichle, Chris Russell, Caryl St Ama, Nancy Kay Turner) - diverse in age, geography and artistic practice - worked solo on each piece before sending it on to fellow collaborators.

While the content was not planned, the works developed as commentaries on personal, social and religious conditions of today. The group developed a surprisingly consistent mixed media aesthetic since the project originated in January 2018.

The project culminates with multiple exhibitions occurring in Los Angeles with plans for further exhibitions with galleries in other cities.
