Y.Z. Kami: Endless Prayers
Foreword by Ziba de Weck. Text by Julien Jonas Bismuth, Doris van Drathen.
Emerging Persian-born figurative painter Y.Z. Kami's canvases feature flat, matte portraits resembling Byzantine frescos or Egyptian Fayum portraits. Included here are such works from the past decade, along with abstracted collages, made from poetry and prayer texts, inspired by the whirling motions of Sufi dervishes.
