Artist Creates Hand-Drawn Persian Rugs
Posted on November 02 2016
Jason Seife is an incredibly patient (and talented) person. The Miami artist creates paintings that resemble ornate Persian rugs, something which requires a lot of focus and time but is clearly worth the effort, as the pieces are undeniably impressive upon completion. Says the Robert Fontaine Gallery, "what initially drew him (Jason) to these works was not only the aesthetic but the dense history and meaning behind the imagery. The way the weavers were able to link each rug's particular pattern, palette, and style with a specific and identifiable geographic area or nomadic tribe really stood out to him. Jason aims to mirror this practice with his take on the carpets by having each color and pattern specifically correlate to what state of mind and emotion he was in while creating the specific work."
