Untitled- UNFRAMED
Acrylic on Canvas

90 x 90 cm

Hosna Karnama/ Iran/ b. 1987

We're all on a never-ending quest to connect with the world around us; art is the communication and mutual language between the artist's inner and outer worlds. The artist believes that we all have emotions that are unsaid. The rest, like hazy mental images, will never be expressed in words. She believes it is an issue in our modern lives that, despite the fact that many social media sites claim to help us communicate better, we still feel we are unable to properly express ourselves. As an artist, Hosna's aim is to represent these images of our inner voices and emotions through visual art. The artist seeks to articulate and imagine these thoughts and emotions in her paintings in a more clear, succinct, and abstract way. She is influenced by Iranian colors and calligraphy, which is the most advanced form of spiritual interaction and abstract art in Eastern culture.

As this artwork is currently located overseas kindly allow for 1-2 week delivery (depending on country of origin).

Emergeast is an online gallery championing the latest generation of emerging Middle Eastern & North African artists to a new generation of young collectors. Emergeast’s aim, in collaboration with the Aga Khan Museum Shop, is to break down the barriers to collecting art by facilitating access to high quality artworks at accessible prices. 

Through a highly curated selection of Middle East and North African (MENA) artists, our mission is to incubate an un-intimidating space for young collectors, first time buyers and general art enthusiasts to foster a deep connection between artists and collector for generations to come.

At Emergeast x Aga Khan Museum Shop, we believe everyone has a story to tell. Beyond the aesthetics, the story and inspirations behind an artwork can support one’s personal narrative and journey thereafter. Through building our Urbanite community of collectors, we aim to expand and develop a cultural appetite for the arts and beyond.
