 Icons of Nature by Sirpa Pajunen-Moghissi

13th October 2018 - 2nd January 2019

Private View Invitation
Friday 12th October 6pm-8pm


Sirpa Pajunen-Moghissi makes mixed media works using a technique that involves layering multiple materials and drawing and painting on them as she builds up the surface. Her current series of work is called Icons of Nature and looks into the philosophy of Pantheism as well as how primitive human’s experienced and worshipped nature.
Her latest work takes many ideas from the traditions of icon painting. The golden halos have turned into large abstract shapes that play on the pictorial surface with the same rhythms as they do in traditional icons, but without the human presence. She uses wooden boards as the base for her work as they are used in iconography, but instead of people as religious beings she has placed nature on the pedistool.

Her work is a combination of painting, drawing and photos that has been manipulated digitally using computer, iPhone and Photoshop. She uses an inkjet printer as a painting medium along with layers of acrylic paint, paper, film, gold imitation leaf, spray paints and resin. 

Sirpa lives and works in London, where she gained her BA in 1996 (Byam Shaw School of Art) and MA in 1999 (Middlesex University).
