Mani Nejad

"Niemandsland"

Nov 17 - Dec 16, 2008

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Strikingly powerful through their uncompromisingly puristic colour scheme and vivid forms, Mani Nejad’s works trigger a visual swirl of imagination and allusions to the sub-conscious with a whiff of an almost Ulysses-style narrative.

Applying a stream of consciousness-like creative process, he assembles and processes snippets of perception and fast-taken notes of life to abstract compositions that are located in fictional “Niemandsland”: a realm of imagination not linked to anyone or anything.

Yet, if this is a land belonging to no-one it is still to be experienced by everyone – with its illusionary world being open to personal and individual reflection.
