Simeen Farhat

One of the great artist of our time that moves words into three dimensional space with great skill and power of motion is Simeen Farhat. She creates shadows with extreme skill. She uses famous Farsi and Urdu poets as her source material. And the focus of these poems relate to freedom of expression. I think when words push upon your presences by entering your space, you are confronted with need to understand the text. The movement of the work only expresses the further power of the text. I think Farhat's work is transformative and I am glad to see such a dynamic artist in Texas.
