About Lakshmi Sunder

Lakshmi Sunder is an emerging artist based in Palo Alto, California. She immigrated to the United States from Chennai, India at 22 to study computer sciences. Her immigration history and employment in Silicon Valley inspired a diverse body of work exploring her spiritual and Indian heritage. Her work is focused on blending Eastern textile crafts and Western traditions of oil painting. Through the use of textiles and prints, she explores borders: borders that define her memories of what comprises home, and borders between spirituality and everyday life. These fabrics were collected from over her lifetime to recall gestures of family and life. Through architectural forms that mirror the traditional Indian weaving and block prints, these painting build monuments to the spiritual icons that we call upon in the midst of daily routine.
