This original work has been sold. Sale

DESCRIPTION

Watercolor gouache and collage on paper

Bluehill, Redbone illustrates Karamallis’s intrigue in traditional Middle Eastern craft in South Africa. Recalling a visit to a woman in South Africa who collects and sells Suzani fabrics from Uzbekistan, Karamallis’s delicate mixed media work reflects the intricate patterns and bright colors and celebrates the merge of two cultures in both the artist’s memory and imagination.

Integral to her work, Karamallis’s use of mixed media collage incorporates paper of varying textures and thickness created from repurposed watercolors, painted paper and digitally designed patterns inspired by Persian tiles representative of her Middle Eastern heritage. The addition of mixed media of varying texture and thickness, creates a unique depth and intricacy to her watercolors.
