Yet others think otherwise: "To believe is to see." In this edition of Cut & Curated, we take seeing into a gratification of senses through patterns and textures.

In Tsong Pu's Great Desire we find a geometric pattern that is not devoid of emotions that is stripped of usual contemporary abstraction. The artist goes beyond the mainstream and adds a bit of a poetic sense to his creations.
Meanwhile, Kanchana Gupta shares a meta-narrative of her living conditions in an urban environment. Through different processes of compression and compilation, the artist creates a commentary on the unparalleled aftermath of migration, urbanization, and globalization through everyday objects.
