Fatima Garzan SSAC/AiR Resident, October 14 – November 15, 2017
In my month long residency in Salt Spring Island as Artist-in-Resident, AiR
program, I have focused on process and materials, creating print based
sculpture, and exploring the temporal nature of experimental work.
My aim has been to break away from my habitual way of working, explore new
ideas, and re-evaluate my relationship with my work.
I will strive to mix influences from east and west – ornamental and modern
design – from my Iranian background and my art training in Canada. I plan to
combine motifs of decorative and geometric patterns found in Persian miniatures,
but modify them to my own ends. I am interested in being faithful to the tenets of
abstraction, that the work should lead the way.
