ONE DAY, ONE VERY SIMPLE DAY….

Ghazaleh Baniahmad

Four years ago, OCADU FoA grad Ghazaleh Baniahmad moved with her family to Canada. At that time, her mother had her first stroke. Since then her life – as artist and daughter - has shifted. She focuses her attention now on her daily struggle as a woman and on being a daughter of a sick mother and an immigrant. Her creative work addresses three themes: mother, immigration and dreams. She experiments and works intuitively with materials and processes using drawing, painting, photo-collage, sculpture and mixed media. She also uses photography and found images and works primarily in black and white. This palette acts as a rich metaphor for memory.
