Featured artists

Azar Alsharif (IR)


Azar Alsharif

Azar Alsharif’s works spring from her rudimentary methods and processes where the collage often acts as both an abstract and figurative starting point. Alsharif’s work is often based on found images and juxtapositions of different elements and symbols that form a new whole via simple abstractions or interventions. Her work touches upon topics such as subjective perception, time, and value.
