Disconnect Artwork

$1,550

*Lead time: 16 weeks.

Aliyah Sadaf is a mixed-media artist based in Chicago, Illinois. Her visually complex work pays homage to the nuance of human emotion and duality of nature. Working from an intuitive process that references a childhood spent in Pakistan, Sadaf has cultivated an affinity for materials in their most organic form—be it concrete cracking under exposure to the elements or warm clay baking in the heat.

Her raw, elemental works are imagined in concrete and intuitively layered with a melange of materials in recycled paper, cardboard, and acrylic. These heavily textured, sculptural pieces “seek to embody the imperfection that prevails in all aspects of our lives, our relationships, and our emotions” in the artist’s own words.

Concrete & acrylic on panel, “disconnect” was created in the midst of complex world events, this work is the expression of the artist’s attempt to simplify and disentangle emotion and perception. Contained within the perplexity and uncertainty is an ultimate resonance of comfort and connection.

Concrete & acrylic on panel, unframed 12x12 inches (300x300 mm)

This is a one-of-a-kind item and therefore each one is unique. Variations in color, texture, size, and shape should be expected.
This item is made to order by hand. All sales are final.
