States of being in Abstract

Whilst in New York, I was lucky enough to visit the Elma Wimmer gallery to see a collection of art by emerging Iranian artists, all under the title of ‘States of being in Abstracrt’, curated by Roya Khadjavi.

Artists include: Dana Nehdaran, Aida Izadpanah and Masoumeh Moghhadam.

Nehdaran’s ‘Fe26’ series centres around the theme of theough oxidation of iron, portrayed through beautifyllyinimalistix canvases, whilst Izadpanah utilises cement, acrylic and wood to produce highly texturised pieces that portray the innocence of the present moment, and overall conveying the beauty of time’s aesthetic, through capturing the destructive nature of the materials when combined.

Gunningham creates some visually fantastic art with brilliant colour combinations and a variety of shapes and a very modern aesthetic. Take a look at some of my favourites, or if you want to find out more about his work checkout his website:

Look back to my GCSE works!

After having completed my gcse’s last year, I was delighted to be able to take some of my pieces from over the last two years back home today! Feeling nostalgic and happy that I can look at them with a relaxed conscience and actually enjoy them!                                                                                                    >Scroll to the bottom for a full slideshow of more pieces


This was my own choice project’s final piece. My project was called ‘Body language human emotions and facial expressions’ and I really love the genuine warmth I’ve captured in my grandfathers eyes.


This was a developmental for my still life project, very simply depicting an apple and vase, focusing in on the details of each element and using warm rustic tones.



As a part of my ‘rituals’ exam project, I used oils to paint the scene of a mother preparing her daughter’s traditional headpiece for a tribal Swahili wedding.


On the left is my final piece for my architecture project, inspired by the beauty and complexity of Iranian mosques. Mixed media was used for both pieces and as you can see, I developed and incorporated the mosque from the developmental on the right into my final.
