Born and raised in Kolkata, India, a resident of New Jersey,
Tania Sen practices her craft in Manhattan and NJ. Contextualizing
generic icons as social narratives, capturing the dichotomy of the
human condition, are building blocks of her paintings, etchings,
silk screen prints, digital art, photography, neon and other installations.
“Fizzy Dreams”, - bearing a familiar script, serving the purpose of mnemonic in a familiar landscape of consumerism, these works are as if encoded with a system of signs and meanings that constitute contemporary media and consumer societies. Baudrillard claims that commodities are bought and displayed as much for their sign-value as their use-value, and that the phenomenon of sign-value has become an essential constituent of the commodity and consumption in society. These works as standalone pieces or as a series, echoes the alienation intrinsic to a market society.
