MONIR SHAHROUDY FARMANFARMAIAN: MOSAICS OF MIRRORS (2006)

By Rose Issa. Foreword by Frank Stella

The first publication to celebrate the work of Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, one of Iran’s leading contemporary artists, whose career spans more than fifty years. She has enjoyed a renaissance of creativity following her ‘rediscovery’ in her late seventies. This comprehensive study focuses on Farmanfarmaian’s extraordinary mirror-mosaic panels and installations: she is the only contemporary artist to have combined the ancient tradition of mirror mosaic and reverse-glass painting with Islamic geometry – all to spectacular, glittering effect.
