Fariba Abedin's "Geometric Love" Opening Reception
SAMARA Gallery is pleased to present Geometric Love, a solo exhibition of museum-bound paintings and an installation by Fariba Abedin. This new body of work brings in the signature geometric style of Abedin, but introduces a new angle through exploring concepts of love. The soft curvature of calligraphy juxtaposes and blends with Abedin’s angular precision, creating a dance of the eyes for viewers.
Abedin’s work explores geometric abstraction with an emphasis on color study, where color and form become the subjects. In some of her paintings, a simple concept such as the color wheel is transformed into an intriguing and complex design. She incorporates a variety of color combinations and their tints, shades, and tones to create the illusion of volume, space, vibration, and transparency. She works on canvas, wood panel and makes installations of multiple pieces creating unique displays.
Fariba Abedin is an Iranian American artist. Abedin attended Massachusetts College of Art, where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Architecture. She continued her education at The Connecticut State University, where she was awarded a Master of Science in Education. She currently lives and works out of Houston, TX.
