N. Dash engages with the sense of touch as a primary mode of art-making, often juxtaposing common materials like paint and canvas with their raw counterparts, such as pigment or adobe mud gathered from the Southwest Desert. Dash’s use of these disparate elements in paintings, works on paper, and photographs provides compelling entry points into their histories. The laborious and performative physical contact required to construct these artworks establishes the body as a presence in the work, giving both warmth and gravitas to the resulting minimalist arrangements.
