XVA Gallery presents “Words Chimes; Meaning in Movements”, a solo show of Simeen Farhat. The abstract forms created out of dyed cast resin have their roots in literature. The texts used by Farhat in her work are poems written in Urdu, Farsi, Arabic, German and English. Personal writings and concerns have a place alongside writings of worldwide importance. The physicality of her work is poetic and graceful, utilizing form and shadow, positive and negative space. It presents an opportunity to step past the chaos and discover the sense.
