HADIEH SHAFIE

Hadieh Shafie, Magenta (Ketab Series), 2012
I'm fascinated by the hand-dyed, rolled paper works of Hadieh Shafie (1969-), an Iranian artist who studied at Pratt.  Reminiscent of ancient scrolls, and inspired by Abstract Expressionism, the works resound on multiple levels.  When a friend sent me the above image of myself, which was enhanced using the iPhone app Percolator, I was delighted by it's affinity to the mesmerizing sculptures.
