Using her hands as her tool, Aazam Irilian’s paintings are created through combining acrylic inks, fabric dyes and oil on canvas. She begins every painting in a state of not knowing and by pouring the paint onto the canvas. This technique allows the paints to stay fluid longer and bleed into each other slowly over time—hence, the tonal variations and transparency of the colors, which create a sense of depth within the space. This results in fluidity and translucency on the surface, which are complemented by organic lines to create movement and form.
