Many artists today are embracing the desire to harness the present moment: revelling in an experimentation of space, light and sensory material. Manipulating light is Amy Majed’s primary aesthetic, with both artificial and natural light coming together in an amalgamation of forms, shadows and geometries. She is inspired by items in the domestic space, often using sheets and other found materials, alluding to a sense of safety paired with the restraints of being a social carer. This produces a captivating and psychedelic atmosphere for the installations. In the featured work, fabric installations are cut and burned, creating a cluster of different patterns on the surface, paying homage to the likes of Yayoi Kusama.
