Huma Bhabha creates works that seem at once reflective of the present day and connected to some unknowable ancient past. "Other Forms of Life" presents a focused, seven-year survey, including nearly 30 works that employ the artist's own brand of figuration and enigmatic iconography.

Life-size, abstracted figurative sculptures in cork, Styrofoam, wood, wire, clay, and paint stand sentinel throughout the gallery space. These are surrounded by two-dimensional works including a set of 10 haunting photogravures and large-scale photo collages that combine landscape and animal images, masked and obscured through the addition of paint, collage, and other media.

Other works on view include rubbings created on the floor of the artist's studio-drawings that act as remnants of the artist's three-dimensional sculptural works, reflecting both the texture of the brick flooring of the artist's studio and the footprints of the cork sculptures, recorded as they stood during their creation.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 13, 2019.
