Working across collage, drawing, textiles, digital media, sculpture, video and text, Khush uses the remixing of patterns, images, rituals and processes to explore identity, cultural heritage, personal history and the everyday experience of the urban environment.
Khush has exhibited in the UK, USA and India. Her work is held in the public collections of the City of Leicester Museums Trust and of De Montfort University and in private collections in Canada, India, Malaysia, the Netherlands and New Zealand. She has a BA and MA in Fine Art from De Montfort University, Leicester.
She is passionate about inclusive and accessible art-making for all and has facilitated art workshops for children, young people, prisoners and mental health service users.
doomscroll damage control (2020) aims to convey the anxiety and constant checking of news as experienced by the artist during lockdown. News headlines, quotes by politicians and medical officers, lines from movies used to distract herself and selected highlights from her inner monologue are presented undifferentiated from each other, looping continuously.
