Nissa Raad

Dirimart is pleased to host Nissa Raad’s first solo exhibition in Istanbul. In this new series, which would be exhibited for the first time, the artist embraces spontaneity and the freedom of abstraction. Emphasizing the artistic process rather than the final product, the artist employs a method involving the creation of layers through a series of random impulsive actions. Reexamining the outputs in the end, Raad searches for what is of value and what is dispensable. “This pleasantly challenging process is repeated several times, layer after layer of chaos followed by ‘sanity’, until the work tells me that it is complete, “and this process results in multilayered organic forms with rich texture.
