About

Zarah Hussain gains inspiration for her drawings and reliefs from the geometric shapes of the ancient Persian empire. With her digital work, the artist even adds a totally new dimension to the ancient patrimony of Islamic patterns.  She creates visual formulas that express universality based on mathematical instructions with rotational and mirror symmetries. The repetitive arrangements have a hypnotic-contemplative effect; they suggest infinity. Hussain compares it to DNA: an immeasurable quantity of possibilities and differentiations unfold ad infinitum from one source. Mathematics, spirituality and beauty fuse into complex structures in her work. She investigates the discharge in current events.
