YZ Kami: White Dome

Leila Heller Gallery, Dubai

09 Mar 201619 Apr 2016

Kami explores spirituality through the use of light and large-scape collage. By interweaving mixed-media collages on paper, he uses Persian poetry and religious scriptures arranged in circles to recall the ritual of prayer and the mosaics of sacred architecture. His dome paintings additionally convey a sense of universal spirituality in the form of a central bright light that spills over countless rows of tiny rectangles hand-painted or stamped onto the canvas.
