Mahdieh Abolhasan


Born in 1980 in Tehran, Iran, Abolhasan began painting and sculpturing as a child by attending courses at Kanoon. She is a member of the renowned Iranian artist Farhad Gavzan’s Drawing House. Her works range from sculpture to performance, and she also works on graphic design for several art magazines and art books. Abolhasan’s works primarily incorporates a special paper handmade by the artist herself. Layers of this paper  are interrupted by striking gleams of mirrored glass. Each installation invites the viewer to peer into an isolated space, where they find yet another dimension into the artwork that would have remained unrevealed otherwise. Some layers are made by creation and others by destruction, resulting in a cross of drawing and sculpture.
