Wiggins traveled to India to research the work of Indian artist Nasreen Mohamedi (1937-1990) and to make her own work in relationship to Mohamedi’s extraordinary body of work. Wiggins was an artist in residence at the Sanskriti Foundation in Delhi. Mohamedi had a photographic practice as well as a highly refined drawing practice. While in Delhi, Wiggins photographed ancient sites and Mughal architecture with Mohamedi as her imaginary “guide.” Wiggins brought these images, experiences and research back to her studio in the U.S. There she produced a series of large abstract drawings in India ink, gouache and graphite. Wiggins’ drawings and photographs diverge from Mohamedi’s work but are inspired by her diligent and exceptional art practice. This project is part of Wiggins’ larger ongoing project – “Searching Selves: An Intersubjective Practice with Remarkable Women Artist’s of the 20th Century.”
