Timglaset Editions proudly present a collection of 30 stunning pieces from Dona Mayoora‘s Listening To Red-sequence, which explores metaphors beyond the use of words. She describes her work as a combination of art, poetry, visual metaphors – and politics, in terms of listening and being aware of what’s happening around the world and responding to the disarrays, injustices and chaos. Her work is asemic in the sense that it is open for the reader to fill in and interpret the content.
Terri Witek: “This poetic work elegantly and powerfully dismisses the notion of the literal to show how vividly things speak no matter who listens.”
Nico Vassilakis: “Dona Mayoora’s talent lies in her use of an Asemic cursive hand and smart balanced construction. Each piece is a visual slant rhyme, is a building waiting for its viewer to inhabit it.”
