Taymour Grahne Gallery is proud to present Bricks, a solo exhibition of new thick oil paintings, watercolors, and sculptures by Brooklyn-based artist Nadia Ayari. Marking the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, Ayari uses her practice to explore the intersection between primary forms: the fig, branch and blood. Employing images of submission and isolation, her paintings are stilled in (or out of) time— relating conceptual narratives of love and captivity. Taking on further abstract qualities in this body of work, Ayari finds clarity in her form making. Her saturated palette and contrasting hues suggest a deeper, more acute relationship to the formal qualities of each shape.
