The realm of attendants, PR Edition, 2021

Published by Picture Room, Beheld is one of two silkscreen editions featuring digitally created drawings by Somnath Bhatt. The editions highlight Bhatt’s multidisciplinary approach that draws from various genres, cultures, centuries, and emotional states, interpreted through hand-drawn form and algorithms alike. Conceived as a diptych, the works emerged from Bhatt returning to old sketchbooks, then digitally re-creating drawings in meticulous, yet meditative, detail. Transcendent figures are centered alongside flora and fauna, ancient and mythological iconography—together conveying “an offering of gratitude, warmth, new beginnings, and images taking a life of their own,” as Bhatt describes. 

Somnath Bhatt, b. Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India, is a multidisciplinary designer and artist who lives and works in New York. His work has been shown at ICA, London; MoMA PS1; RISD Museum, Providence; Lewisham Arthouse, UK; Institute for New Connotative Action, Seattle; Resort Gallery, Baltimore; in addition to The Wrong Biennale, Oslo; Art Week Dubai; and New York Art Book Fair, among others. In 2019, he published Ode, a collection of digitally created drawings, risograph-printed with scarlet, cornflower, and gold inks.
