Bushra Gill, Pool Chaos, Ordered - Original Painting
Pool Chaos, Ordered
9 3/4 x 13 1/2 inches
Watercolor on paper
Bushra Gill is interested in finding order within the chaos of everyday life through art. The California-based artist graduated from Pratt Institute in 1994, with a BFA in sculpture.
"I use structures imposed by patterns to hide personal and narrative images in plain view without being the sole focus. Tessellating images from everyday life using colored inks on drypoint-printed Islamic geometric patterns create a point of origin for plays on color and spatial structure. Exploring the idea of privacy, the hidden images are present but veiled, like my hair which I cover with a scarf in public."
