KYNKYNY.com is delighted to present A Trail of Thorns, the debut exhibition of sculptures by Sandilya Theuerkauf. A Trail of Thorns will be the gallery’s first showcase of the new decade – a decade that promises to be marked by an increasing awareness of environmental issues and the impending effects of climate change.
The exhibition features 18 intricate and ethereal sculptures, magically composed from the thorny flora of South India’s scrub forests. This body of work is an invitation to contemplate our relationship with our surroundings and how we connect with nature.
