Study of Square/ Quilts of my mother, acrylic and Pencil on paper 235 x 186 cm (consists of 16 drawings) 2021

(In many ways, Fatima Barznge’s recent body of work reflects the art of patchwork quilting. Its prominent use of squares and the grid-like composition of the wall-ensembles echo the architecture of the quilt, while the individual pieces resemble fabric designs figuring repeat patterns of squares, triangles and other abstract motifs. The images are based on the textile patterns she remembers seeing in her youth in the fabric of her mother’s dress and the carpet at the mosque. Each drawing comes into being line by line, layer upon layer, mimicking the interlacing threads of a fabric).
