Thomas Brasch, Tapestry: Photo exhibition of Persian carpets Past

Apr 6-29, 2017 ,
7:00 PM - 6:00 PM
- Toronto, Canada

Akasha Art Projects presents Tapestry, a photo exhibition of Persian carpets and how their visual narratives can be interpreted through the lens for a new generation.

Persian carpets are stories and poetry told in pictures. These visual narratives are the memories, the histories and even the souls of previous owners. Each carpet is composed of dyed wool and silk, which are carefully knotted by deft hands, made from memory and handed down from one generation to the next. Tabriz, Esfahan, Nain, Bukhara, Qom and Shiraz are but a few of these regions that have produced characteristic styles.

Thomas’ work has always focused on function, form, symmetry and beauty. In his Persia series, he explores how these carpets adorn our floors and walls, and beautify our lives. These vibrant images, most of which measure 40 inches, squared, give a new voice to ancient poetry.
