Maysha Mohammedi’s work is vivid and it represents a new sort of atmospheric abstraction.
Mohamedi palette is fully abstract, with evident references to a variety of genres, representing her own background, daily happenings, and epic constellations inside her own cultural matrix.
Maysha Mohamedi’s paintings explore both Eastern and Western cultures while employing contradictory characteristics of figuration and abstraction.
The artist translates the poetic movements and symbolism of Farsi into shapes that represent her two identities, Iranian and American. She is inspired by her home language’s beautiful calligraphic flair.
Mohamedi’s paintings, which combine brilliant colours and delicate motions, evolve into mental maps of the ideas and sensations she experiences while balancing between two worlds.
