Toba Khedoori has been building a body of work based on dependably straight and uninspiring lines. They are created on a sensual, thick waxed paper and are reminiscent of architectural patterns. She makes serial structures, one-by-one and groups of objects from a methodical manufacturing line on massive sheets of white paper, as well as accumulations of diverse, mostly natural, components in graphite and oil.
The artist’s work incorporates both drawing and painting. She is inspired by abandoned architectural characteristics such as building facades, common playground equipment, metal fences, pedestrian bridges, rows of windows, and other recurrent, daily elements.
