Golden Couple | Negar Rashidi | Mixed Media

This piece "Golden Couple"from the "Black" collection by Iranian artist Negar Rashidi is a stunning example of abstract art through mixed media, expertly incorporating classical baroque elements. The use of oyster shells painted in gold and black is a bold and unexpected choice, but it works perfectly within the context of the piece. The shells themselves seem to shimmer and reflect the light in a way that is both captivating and intriguing.


The black baroque frame that surrounds the shells adds a sense of elegance and refinement to the piece. The intricate details of the frame create a sense of depth and texture, drawing the viewer's eye inward towards the shells themselves. The natural and classical elements of the frame  of "Golden Couple" are in stark contrast with our expectation of black and gold in an industrial pieces which have dominated our collective consciousness these last years. What makes these pieces truly remarkable is the way in which it blends traditional elements with more modern, abstract techniques. In "Golden Couple" it is thusly named as there are two oyster shells placed next to each other. Fitting together in a duo. The use of mixed media adds an additional layer of complexity and texture to the piece, making it all the more intriguing.


Overall, "Golden Couple" is a stunning example of how classical elements can be incorporated into contemporary art, resulting in a work that is both visually striking and builds on her Delft Blue collection, that also often incorporates black design elements to frame the Delft Blue miniature paintings.
