Kamrooz Aram will exhibit new and recent paintings, sculptural works, and collages, highlighting the complex position of ornament throughout the history of modern art. Aram’s works challenge conventional art historical hierarchies that have placed fine art and the decorative arts in separate categories of value; mediating patterns lifted from Persian carpets through gestural abstraction, allowing color field painting to become backdrops for ceramics, and employing well painting with reference to encyclopedic museums, where viewers typically engage with the decorative arts.
