‘Shadows’ in New York Gallery

‘Shadows’ in New York Gallery

A series of mixed media artworks by Iranian-American artist Hadieh Shafie is on view at Leila Heller Gallery in New York. 
The gallery has presented over 40 new works of the artist created between 2013 and 2017, under the title ‘Shadows’.
The works are a combination of scrolled dyed paper and Persian calligraphy and Shafie has created “a kaleidoscope of movement and dance originating from the contrast of light and dark, movement and stillness,” Tandis Art Magazine reports. 
In contrast to her earlier practices, the featured artworks have been partially dipped in black color. 
In an introduction to the exhibition, the artist says: “Black color creates an entirely new visual effect offering more of a fusion jazz beat with movement and motion.”
Shafie constructs intricate designs with low-relief paper sculpture using a repetition of the word ‘Eshgh’ (literally love) and her compositions are reminiscent of traditional Middle Eastern art.
Born in 1969, Shafie holds a master’s degree in imaging and digital art from the University of Maryland, and a master’s degree in fine arts in painting from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. 
Her collection will receive visitors until April 22.
