Azita Ghafouri’s large-scale installation will be featured in the gallery space On the Wall. The artist is presenting four recent large paintings on silk and cotton surfaces that were created for this exhibition. The yellow and dark blue paint-marks stand out against the white background. The energetic brushstrokes invite the viewer to follow the gestures and imagine the journey.
