#wip #hadiehshafie #eshgh Nothing better than working in the studio.

Hadieh Shafie was born in Tehran, Iran and currently based in the United States, the artist constructs intricate designs with low-relief paper sculpture. Both process-oriented and impossibly refined, Shafie’s skillful works are often monumental in scale, overwhelming the viewer with a visual feast of color. #hadiehshafie #contemporaryart #canvastube #art #iranianart

Here is the starting point piece for my new series Saayeha (translation Shadows) I began working on this process in mid 2015. Every time I think I've exhausted one aspect of the material I go deeper and something remarkable emerges. #hadiehshafie #shadows #iranianartist #paper #bookarts

Another fun studio visit. #hadiehshafie @its_lila

This work in spike form explores my idea of the whirling unraveling of the miniature books it is made of. At once revealing the strokes of text inside the books and at the same time keeping the viewer at a distance. Spike Ten, 2017

Today's labor of love...the meditative process of drawing eshgh allows me to think on variations, life experiences and memories. Been thinking how each work contains that energy within it...does my mood influence the work or does the work influence me? Music plays a role too...these days it's all Jazz..."In a Sentimental Mood, Ellington & Coltrane" could there be anything better? No. Whenever I think I'll tire from this process something interesting happens and I am right there again.

Ceramics I made at Pratt sometime in 1995-96. There are better ones out there but it was sweet to see these again today. #hadiehshafie #eshgh #prattinstitute

Among my favorite artists who have a Middle Eastern subject matter is the wonderful @hadieh_shafie, who combines Persian calligraphy with American Color-Field Painting. Swipe left to see more details of this piece.
