Spatial ambiguity over the course of cultural change is the explored theme of Nazari’s paintings and installations. Structures both ancient and contemporary are merged into abstract, organic forms with floating, collapsing and shifting environments. This unification is represented with both laws and chaos to convey the unsettled sensations caused by the transitions between different cultures.
