MFA ’23 Fine Arts 3D
As an artist, my art is a reflection of my experiences, both personal and political, in my home country of Iran. My work explores themes of trauma, memory, and identity through intricate hand embroidery and weaving techniques. I use symbolism and unconventional materials like hair to evoke a sense of repulsion and attraction, inviting viewers to engage with the complexities of the work. I celebrate the enduring power of craft and challenge gender roles by using traditional textile techniques and materials. Ultimately, my use of textiles is a reflection of my self-awareness and desire to express myself in a personally meaningful and socially relevant way.
