Y.Z. Kami: Endless Prayers
The exhibition presents some of this New York-based, Iranian-born artist’s most recent works, which reflect the theme of endless prayers. Prayer, an act both physical and transcendent, is grounded in the world of time and space but sustained by the perception of something that exists beyond embodied reality. It evokes a state more easily felt than seen. And yet, in Y.Z. Kami’s remarkable paintings and collages, the artist has masterfully rendered the intangible and profoundly personal notion of prayer in strong visual terms through binaries of words and images, East and West, corporeal and spiritual.
