Abhidnya Ghuge transforms disposable paper plates into immersive installations using wood-block printed patterns inspired by Indian henna designs, the microscopic and macroscopic world, and the current cultural landscape of America. Ghuge’s work celebrates these patterns and organic forms, while calling attention the ephemeral nature of human experience.
Born in India and a dermatologist by previous profession, Abhidnya Ghuge is a multidisciplinary installation artist. Currently an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Texas at Tyler, she has exhibited in solo and group shows throughout the United States, and her work can be found in collections throughout India and the United Kingdom.
