Amira Hasoon, Freelance Artist, 2020

AMIRA HASOON

Observing and drawing on location, standing amongst the pedestrian and road traffic, or perched between branches in a forest, Amira’s drawings are mostly composed through direct observation, as the essential depths and elements are hidden by the flatness of a photograph.

‘The job of the artist is to observe reality of nature, and not reinvent it in the studio’ - John Ruskin

 

 

 


Amira has adopted the concept of ‘Invisible Lines’ which she describes as,  'An interpretation of Observation'.  

These ‘Invisible Lines’ intentionally lead the viewer through the inclusion of space.  This is achieved through the interaction of a viewer reading into the positive and negative spaces in her work, thus creating a viewer’s

unique lines of desire.

'I feel that art has something to do with the achievement of stillness in the midst of chaos...

...I think that art has something to do with an arrest of attention in the midst of distraction'

                                                                   

                                   - Saul Bellow
