Iranian born, 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. 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.
MADI is a great artistic adventure, and perhaps, the only existing movement which can justify half a century of existence. MADI is more than an avant-garde movement; it has an underlying wave with several and differing offspring. It is the slow-paced growth of a tectonic plate in the history of art. Indeed, since art and environment are perveived as the fusion of two cultural phenomena, the progression and expression of both of these blend in everyday life.
