Collection of the Artist
Sandeep Johal is an artist living and working in Vancouver, Canada. Recent solo exhibitions include a forthcoming show at Surrey Art Gallery (2021); She Left Only To Come Back through the Art Rentals + Sales Program operated by the Vancouver Art Gallery (2019); and Rest in Power at The Gam Gallery in Vancouver (2017). Select group exhibitions include Small Scale Right Hemisphere Part II at Gallery Jones in Vancouver (2021); twentytwothirty at Art Rapture in Vancouver (2020); and Vancouver Mural Festival Year 5 and 4 Gallery Show (2020, 2019). In 2020, Johal presented work at Luminosity – an off-site initiative with Kamloops Art Gallery of new media and video projects. In 2020, Johal was an artist-in-resident at BAF. Proceeding her residency at BAF in 2019, she presented new work at her solo exhibition Beast of Burden where she confronted the contemporary demands of maternal perfection through the decorative styles of Indian folk art. Johal also presented work in the 2019 Façade Festival in partnership with Burrard Arts Foundation at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
Johal’s practice engages drawing, collage, textiles, and large-scale murals. Through her Indo-folk feminine aesthetic, she confronts themes of bleakness, despair, and ugliness with their dissonant opposites: brightness, hope, and beauty. Her work typically centers around the stories of women, and while she highlights female suffering in its many forms, these are ultimately stories of resistance and resilience. Beast Woman VII is a unique work.
