Some Comments On Empty And Full was made by collaging numerous monoprints together, their abstracted patterns forming a fantastical landscape. In this piece, the monoprints have been made on semi-plastic material, a substance which both replicates celluloid and resists liquid pigment. Again Khorramian reveals and emphasizes details by drawing over and scraping into the surface with marks and note taking. The resulting smears and sluices of contrasting earthy tones are assembled in an irregular shape, giving the illusion of apocalyptic terrain. Influenced by medieval chinese landscapes and its spiritual philosophy of space, the title draws upon notions of the atom and the aggregate, the individual, growth, decay and memory.
