This visual artist comes from Iran but now lives in the US. She employs surface design in her work and cuts and compresses work to create some degree of ‘accidental aesthetic’.
The idea is to represent the vagracies of life and its fractured path.
As I am doing the colour section of this unit I’ll comment on the colour use in the above work.
The use of a quite bright and pure tone palette of blue, red and green contrasts with the background brown and serves to highlight the broken lines down the work. It results in an imperfect irregular edge not unlike the Ikat weaving in my kimono.
