From a rich field of references that includes illuminated manuscripts and historic Persian literature, Pardiss Amerian produces mesmerizing works that easily bend between representation and abstraction. Likenesses simultaneously emerge and dissolve before your eyes from the carefully layered ground of each painting. In some ways, Pardiss works like a translator, receiving historical narratives and recontextualizing their components, producing an uncharted elsewhere for viewers to wander.

Join us as we dive deeper into Pardiss’ process and view her works in SOS: A Story of Survival.

This event is part of our weekend celebration opening our fall exhibitions. Please join us for the party on Friday 14 October as we summon survivals and symbols.
