Curator's Eye

Combining modern technology with ancient design practices, Aphra Shemza’s work blurs the lines of dimensionality. Sculptural works adopt mirrored interiors and internal lights, creating geometric patterns that tesselate and retreat into the seemingly infinite back-grounds – a nod towards arabesque design and her Islamic cultural heritage. In contrast to this visual complexity, Shemza’s works on paper explore the mathematic precision and aesthetic simplicity of modernism and minimalism.

The Totem series uses traditional sculpting techniques, organic materials and technology; creating a balance between these conflicting entities. By using the word Totem, the artist creates a spiritual reference fusing the idea of a natural emblem with geometry and creating these monuments for our times. They serve to highlight our connection to one another, technology and the digital world that we find ourselves in today. Looking towards the future and what the possibilities of this hybrid nature could be.

Medium: It is a fine art print created from an original light art work, Framed.
