New Work - Painting

Nadia Ayari - We Saw Stars

Taymour Grahne Projects is pleased to present We Saw Stars, a solo exhibition by NY-based artist Nadia Ayari.

“Maybe this is a dream version of a world where branches are loops, skies are bright blue, and leaves are untethered,” Nadia Ayari deliberates about the paintings in We Saw Stars. Here, she allows herself to restructure her rules and process of painting.

We Saw Stars references that moment of emergence from the underworld, “Where we came forth, and once more saw the stars,” Dante’s poem evokes a resurfacing, also conjured here in Ayari’s process and tribute to Nejma, her grandmother whose name also signifies these incandescent gases from light years away, a supernova that has provided the artist with a renewed anchoring clarity and unfixed gravity."
