‘Fade’ by Niloufar Lamakan: Giclée canvases produced

26 October 2014
Metro was delighted recently to produce Giclée canvases for artist and interior designer Niloufar Lamakan for her contributing exhibition ‘Fade’, part of Islington Contemporary Arts & Design Fair currently taking place at the Candid Arts Gallery.

The beautiful and intricately detailed artwork for Fade was produced using Niloufar’s interior design tools – fabric, wallpaper, and design software – for printmaking and digital art and explores the concepts of beauty and age in an increasingly youth oriented world, obsessed with perfection in humans.

Challenging the idea that life starts with youth and vibrancy, and fades into invisible greyness, Niloufar’s interest lies with how people interact with colour at different stages of life, being inspired by the unexpected behaviour of colour combinations and how textures and layers can create a unique beauty that may not fall within accepted rules.

‘Fade’ questions conflicting feelings towards society’s rules for beauty and aging. Is bright always better than faded?  Using the visual language of colour Niloufar examines her own internal struggle with what is age appropriate, versus exercising the freedom to be herself regardless of age.  Should we sneer at the lack of understanding displayed by those who are not bound by the brutal rules of beauty and youth, or admire them for their sense of self and confidence?

Exhibition dates: 4th – 26th October 2014
Opening times: Friday: 5:00-9:00pmSaturday & Sunday:11:00am – 6:00pm
Admission to the Fair is free
