A suite of four small-scale brass sculptures. In this series, Teja questions the ideas of space, form and volume. Her artworks are visual compounds of moving and colliding shapes in their multiple permutations and combinations, that call attention to subversive notions of space, time and form. The brass sculptures are miniature maquettes of larger works Teja has created in the past by putting together two hemispheres in a playful manner that interrogates equations of volume and form.
