Amira Hasoon, Freelance Artist, 2020


Amira Hasoon is an Oxford born and raised mixed media artist.  She received a BA (Hons) (2014) from Oxford University in Drawing for Fine Art Practice, and BSc (Hons) (2020) from The Open University in Social Psychology.  Hasoon has just completed an Artist in Residence programme in Manchester, NH, United States.




Hasoon’s work attempts to explore narratives within environments, as a means of understanding her own ontological journey in juxtaposition with her surrounding environment.  This conscious awareness has been the driving motivation within her works, and was initially fuelled by a quote from Art novelist, John Berger, ‘…the way we see things is affected by what we know or believe’. 



Her work is a result of the awareness that every individual's differing cognitive processes generally cause behaviour that is adaptive to their current environment, and that this adaptive behaviour impacts how individuals shape themselves within the application of the requisite algorithm. Vision alone is skewed by the nature of one's perception, however to look is an act of choice, and therefore seeing simply helps us establish our place in the surrounding world. Hasoon aims to embed the portrayal of real tangible existences and the presence of being part of something as human interaction, which are integral to her works.


Hasoon has a natural inclination to making small detailed works, which she believes requires the attention differently than large scale pieces, and the need to connect with the audience on an intimate and relative level.
