Hadieh Shafie

The beauty and power of Hadieh Shafie’s art lie in its ability to shed new light on objects of our daily lives.

Her work attempts to take the letters, words, and geometric patterns that surround us and organise our daily lives and perceptions, and to redefine these patterns through a new perception.

This “newness” enables us to re-examine and rethink our relationship to the mundane and daily. Shafie’s representations suggest to us a need to rethink our daily lives, seeing them with new eyes.
