Art Gallery of MIssissauga | 300 City Centre Drive

 

Do you have a patterned or decorated ceramic object that has travelled with you or that represents your home or history? Artist Sanaz Mazinani would like to photograph it and apply the image to create a new art work!

 

Sanaz Mazinani creates digital photo collages using her own photographs and found images; her Persian Architecture series was created from photographs of the intricate tilework in mosques in Iran. The AGM has invited Mazinani to create a new artwork inspired by this exhibition in partnership with the communities of Mississauga! To do this she will photograph patterned ceramic objects provided by the community, and create a new collage from the images.
