Toba Khedoori

[Australian, b. 1964 - ] View All Work

Toba Khedoori is known for her precisely rendered, intricate works depicting familiar objects divorced from any background. For the past two decades, she has created her own atlas of solitary spaces, windows, doors, train compartments, and horizon lines always devoid of a human presence. Usually drawn, and sometimes painted, onto paper, the otherwise empty compositions envelop the viewer's entire field of vision, but their proportion appears autonomous from a real-life referent. The works appear at once fragile and monumental, flat and illusory. Born in 1964 in Sydney, Khedoori received her M.F.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1994.
