Today we’re presenting the work of Los Angeles artist Sherin Guirguis.
An explosion of colors and an intriguing set-up. The work of Sherin Guirguis blends geometric patterns, beams of vibrant shades and see-trough lattice patterns that are carved directly into the surface. Her work is inspired by her hybrid background as a non-Muslim woman born in Egypt and living in the U.S since the age of fourteen. Guirguis’ unique worldview brings together eastern and western references and harmonizes contradictory elements, both formal and social. Guirguis produces work that investigates the frictions between the contemporary and the traditional, the reductive and the ornamental. Her work engages both formal and social concerns by juxtaposing the reductive Western language of minimalist aesthetics with that of Eastern Arabic ornamentation.
