Amera Tamran: Islamic Pattern Art
Jan 22—Jan 30 2013
Saudi-born artist Amera Tamran MFA '13 (Studio Art), MA '12 (Art Education) presents her most recent 3D Islamic pattern work. In her art, Tamran seeks to reflect art history in all of her works, but at the same time produce artwork that is sensitive to contemporary trends. She does so by borrowing ideas from artists from various art periods and combines them in each piece she creates. So time is floating through every art work, and every art work finds new expressions and form to express this floating time.
Her personal philosophy as an interior design student, as well as the future art design educator she wishes to become, is manifold. Her goal is to translate her experiences and feelings as a Saudi Arabian woman and explore universal themes so that people from different cultures and even different times can understand, create a timelessness in her work that will continue to be appreciated.
Tamran holds a Bachelor's of Science degree in Art from King Abdul-Aziz University in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. She has worked as an interior design assistant for her family's construction and real estate business, as well as attended classes in interior design at Drexel University.
Reception: Monday, January 28, 5 p.m.Hamilton Hall
