Singh’s work often renders familiar form into insubstantial mirages, challenging its solidity and by extension the fixity of meaning and the intimacy of knowing that it symbolizes. She transforms form into illusions, perceptual hiccups or ethereal surfaces of lace and thread which appear to levitate like embroideries on air.
