“I’m often drawn to images of very beautiful women because they’re barriers; they have personal significance for me,” says Amini. “My work doesn’t celebrate femininity, but suggests an uneasiness about femininity and women that are really successful.” In Untitled Amini presents a woman’s face obscured by an arrangement of flowers. It evokes a contradictory beauty. The poetic and fragile motifs are made to seem strangely crude and concrete, rendered with thick brush strokes and reduced colours.
