Chohan’s work harnesses the transformative qualities of the materials she selects. A tactile approach is employed to play with the matter; surfaces are manipulated and layers added in a ritualistic manipulation of form.

About

An inflection point is a point of change. In mathematics it is the tipping point between minus and positive, concave and convex. In language inflection is used to describe a change in pitch or tone of voice. 

Chohan’s work harnesses the transformative qualities of the materials she selects. A tactile approach is employed to play with the matter; surfaces are manipulated and layers added in a ritualistic manipulation of form. Applying a near alchemical process colours and textures emerge, serving to emphasize the collective characteristics hidden in the varied points of origin. 

For her presentation at Westminster Library Chohan has focused on ideas around weight and balance. Grounded by innate material properties she explores the less tangible slippage between two physical states. There is a phenomenological understanding of the media evident, its form and structure is laid bare, yet the possibility of transformation never quite leaves the work as realized during the process of making it.
