About – Art

Fariba Abedin’s work explores geometric abstraction with an emphasis on color study where geometry and color become the subjects of her intriguing paintings.  Her large scale geometric paintings give the effect of a blown-up kaIeidoscope to the viewer.  Her carefully selected tints, shades and tones create the illusion of volume, space, vibration, and transparency.

 

Abedin’s multicultural background becomes more visible in some of her paintings which combine calligraphy and geometric abstraction in a distinct way.

 

Although Abedin’s work is geometric and structural, her concept of work is tender and appealing in its appreciation of the nature and science, Color and geometry.  She also conveys a message of love and peace through her work.
