About

The relentless passage of time leads us farther from our memories, making them abstracted, obscured, and blurred by the present. In Obscured By Colors, Yousefian carefully constructs a tableau of fragmented nostalgia using manipulated photographs from past generations. In this series, Yousefian collaborated with Lucas Rise, an Argentinian artist, whose artistic style differs drastically from that of Yousefian’s, with his use of bright colors and decorative patterns. The viewer never sees the full picture, as Yousefian intends to highlight what is gained through being lost, offering only glimpses into experiences once had, and how distorted they become in the present.

 

Exhibited are 23 new works by Yousefian, which build on her practice of exploring and obscuring memories, and how they impact and distort the connections between past and present.
