Unraveled a Solo Exhibit by Artist Nidhi Chanani


Rare Device is pleased to announce Unraveled and These Friends of Mine, new illustrations and works on wood from San Francisco based artist Nidhi Chanani. This is Chanani's first solo show.

On view from September, 9 to October 31, 2011

Located at: Rare Device - 1845 Market Street between Valencia and Guerrero Streets

Store/gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 11am to 7pm and Sunday noon to 6 pm



Unraveled is Chanani's first collection of wood burnings. With a contemporary approach to pyrography, the artist created the pieces by burning each line and symbol into raw wood. Intricate, henna-like patterns are combined with her signature figures. These labor-intensive pieces are expressions of the artist's Indian heritage and combine a modern, storytelling edge.





Nidhi Chanani's artwork has made mulitple appearances on the Illustration Pages website. She was born in Calcutta, India and studied illustration at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. Nidhi currently lives and works in San Francisco. Her work can be found at http://www.e-nidhi.com

Rare Device is a store and gallery that features functional experiments and original ideas in art, design, craft and fabrication. Owner Giselle Gyalzen constantly seeks out objects that are beautiful, evocative, well constructed and thoughtful. In their San Francisco store Rare Device offers a truly "rare" experience with an ever-growing roster of local, national and international artists and designers.
