Ranjani Shettar completed both Bachelors and Masters degree in Fine Arts - Sculpture , from Chitrakala Parikshith Bangalore. Apart from India, she has had her solo exhibition in many American cities, such as New York, Boston and in California and Texas. She has also been part of many group shows in US, UK, France, Australia, Sharjah and India.
Art critic Marta Jakimowicz writes “Inspired by nature, Ranjani is discovering in its phenomena and objects , manifestations of the larger paradigms that govern processes of life, and where spiritual or philosophical intuitions are embedded in daily existence and sensations. Ranjani works with nature – literally as well as metaphorically – using its entities, physicality and behavior to reveal their inherent character and to make them create of their own volition “
Another art critic, Kurt Mueller writes “ Recently the Tadao Ando-designed Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and its “Focus” series of compact exhibitions seemed to be a perfect showcase for her installation-based practice. Shettar’s abstract, meditative forms share a sensibility with Ando’s seamless blend of concrete, water, steel and sky. Both artist and architect shape space with a sensitivity to natural form; both transform mundane materials into transcendent effects “
