#WERKSTOFF Mojé Assefjah

Mojé Assefjah’s (*1970, Teheran, Iran) pictorial systems consist of broad egg–tempera brushstrokes countered by fine lines. Her strokes allude to the materiality of cloths or curtains blowing in the wind, whilst simultaneously mimicking the elegant expression of Persian calligraphy; with the measured and deliberate tempo of that writing, the slow twisting and turning of the pen to modulate each stroke and produce a harmonious unity.
