Nasim Hantehzadeh @ Pippy Houldsworth
18 November 2022 - 7 January 2023
Working in oil, pastel and graphite, across both canvas and paper, Nasim Hantehzadeh brings together freewheeling figurative elements in vibrant and arresting compositions that allude to a range of references, including Paleolithic cave paintings and indigenous art from Mexico, to Islamic architecture and ancient Persian rug patterns. Hantehzadeh’s work often reflects her particular interest in Mayan and pre-Islamic art and artefacts, occasioned by evidence of matriarchal and gender-fluid practices that existed in these cultures prior to European colonisation.
