Sara Irannejad is a Brisbane based multi-disciplinary artist working across painting, pyrography, installation and video. She is currently undertaking a Doctor of Visual Art at Queensland College of Art.
Ambiguous Patterns, a solo exhibition showcasing recent works by Irannejad as part of her ongoing PhD research. The exhibition will be held at Logan Regional Art Gallery and includes works across pyrography, installation, painting and video. These body of works are inspired by cultural aspects of Irannejad's Iranian background and fragments of Australian history and nature.
Irannejad migrated to Australia in 2012 and found her journey and her dual citizenship an inspiration to her art practice, expanding especially concepts like ‘belonging’, ‘place’ and ‘nostalgia’. By drawing on her Iranian roots and juxtaposing images with fragments of Australian history and nature, her works offer new perspectives beyond the boundaries of politics and nationalities, nurturing cross-cultural interconnections and conversations.
Ambiguous patterns invites viewers to explore interconnections between lived experiences, fresh explorations and yet to come possibilities, creating a sense of ambiguous patterns of life.
