After the creation of Gentlemen and Gentlewomen, I thought that I needed to complete this series with a bunch of kids. These are all collages on small round wood panels.
I used acrylic and gel pens over some vintage portraits mounted on the wood boards. As all the adults of the series, even these little fellas are “aliens from the future landed on Earth to teach the good manners to the human species”.
I have been lucky enough to have met in person Maliheh Zafarnezhad in her studio. She is an incredible talent and also an amazing woman. Maliheh is Iraninan and Irish, and her photo transfer collages are a celebration of her rich multicultural history.
These are a small selection of her latest works on wood blocks and ceramic plates. they are part of her series The New Normal and Objects Of Memories. I enjoy these sculptural explorations of her style. Go check her website and Instagram to see more of her works (the pieces on canvas are also stunning!).
