Artwork by Florida Artist Mally Khorasantchi
Mally Khorasantchi is interested in how nature exhibits both chaos and calm, constantly evident on micro, macro and universal levels, seemingly at odds and without purpose. Through natural and manmade actions, evolution and deconstruction, there is often a new order, which can happen swiftly or evolve over millennia. While vanishing species and lands are harsh realities, there are newly discovered species, natural and manmade adaptations and renewal, as well as a growing awareness for global sustainability.
Reflecting on these concerns, Khorasantchi’s paintings do not offer the viewer horizon lines or perspective to give order or focus. She seeks to convey chaos and fragmentation, calm and refuge in varying degrees with a bold and vibrant physicality. The hexagons in her paintings symbolize a connectedness and continuance between chaos and order and earth's remarkable ability to self-heal from most natural and manmade environmental disasters.
