2019 New Work Grantee, Zahra Nazari presents: Uprooted
Uprooted, a new painting exhibition by Zahra Nazari, is a spotlight on the lives of immigrants through the unique lens of Nazari’s abstract art style. After performing a series of interviews and extensive research on the lives of immigrants in Queens, NY, she applied her passion, style, and shared experiences to their journeys to the US. The result is a recognition of the immigrant’s paths and dreams applied through abstract architectural paintings. Zahra Nazari, being an Iranian immigrant to the US, has often been influenced by the unseen forces of her immigration. Feelings of hope, fear, and displacement make their way into her subject matter and brush-strokes. This latest work is an attempt at creating a visual empathy for the shared experiences of all immigrants.
