Nationwide Curating presents an intimate exhibition of personal and emotive, mixed media, framed artworks courtesy of our corporate exhibition venue partner WOTSO workspaces Pyrmont.
Negin Chahoud explores her emotional journey as a refugee from Iran in her arts practice. She gives voice to her courageous story through multi-layered, mixed media artworks on paper and paintings and creates intricate, semi-abstract artworks with a strong narrative.
Each element of Negin’s work is carefully selected including the process of which the paper or canvas has come to life. The staining, mark-marking, harsh and sometimes raw tearing and stitching are all meaningful to the narrative. Each piece not only showcases part of her history but also reflects on her journey to healing and the inspiration she draws from her natural surroundings.
Negin Chahoud was born in Iran (1981), and resides in Southern Highlands. She is currently studying a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Curtin University), and holds a Certificate IV in Fine Arts at Nepean Arts and Design Center (Kingwood TAFE) and a Certificate IV in Interactive Media (Mt Druitt TAFE). Chahoud has exhibited her works in many group exhibitions throughout Sydney and Internationally including Rome.
