Biography / CV of Shohini GhoshShohini Ghosh is a sculptor from Denver Colorado who is originally from India.
Shohini has been sculpting for eleven years and was a lecturer of sculpture in India. She now resides in Littleton, Colorado. She works with a variety of mediums including bronze, fiber glass, iron, copper, bronze, paper fiber, and aluminum.
A former lecturer at the University of Mumbai, India, and Shohini Ghosh is a Denver-based artist whose works are a stylistic representation of genre subjects. “I create sculptures in bronze that can be best described as Figurative, stylistic representation of simple moments in life, a zeitgeist of my surroundings. I use the human body to express and create physical images as a metaphor for the language of the soul (life-force), the illustration of our uniqueness as a human race, our quest to build families, communities and societies that define our existence. Yet that is exactly what my work is all about…An individual quest to record the most precious moments in the spectrum of human emotion and interaction. In 2011&2012, she installed 7 Larger than life public art sculptures in Changchun, China. She notes, “History proves that art acts as an effective impetus for individual spiritual growth, civic development and community pride. My time in China was very rewarding, and the permanency of the installations I did there fosters all three.” Her work has been widely published and written about with a long list of exhibition history that includes many important venues: Littleton Historical Museum (Littleton, Colorado), Sandstone Gallery (Laguna Beach, California), Lowry Art Center (Fort Collins, Colorado), Hand Artes Gallery (Truchas, New Mexico), to name a few. Additionally, Shohini has many of her large scale sculptures in public places, such as Castlegar, BC Canada, International Sculpture Park in China, Carbondale, Colorado Springs and Denver (Colorado), Billings and Sioux Falls (South Dakota), Eau Claire (Wisconsin), Mankato (Minnesota), Gillette (Wyoming), and numerous works all over the Indian subcontinent.
