Shirazeh Houshiary @ Lisson Gallery

22 June 2021 - 31 July 2021

Shirazeh Houshiary presents a new body of work: the first presentation in 15 years to focus exclusively on her paintings.

The five new paintings – Pneuma (2020), Forgetting the Word (2020), Enigma (2020), Pieta (2021) and Loci (2021) – manifest an abstraction that is at once haptic and optic; their surfaces taut with a connective energy that holds pigment and fine skeins of pencil-work in mesmerising suspension.

The works arise from a meditative practice that takes breath as its medium and conceptual framework.
