Udita Upadhyaya_0342_by Esther Espino

The photograph is a medium-shot of the artist in front of one of the gallery’s internal, white walls. She is smiling and gesturing, holding both hands open near her face. Black vinyl letters are installed directly onto the walls, in the form of words and phrases in English. Text appears in different sizes and spatial orientations (e.g., right-side up, upside-down, diagonal, vertical, and organic shapes), with some words/phrases expanded in space, condensed, or intersecting with other text, and with none fully readable in this image. A gestural drawing — also made of black vinyl — is partially visible behind the artist, as are an article of clothing and a latched case of some kind.
