Tasha Amini’s work offers focused and meditative responses to imagery. She develops her paintings from photographs, some of which are personal and others that are found and anonymous. Amini does not work with a specific theme or set of motifs, but rather is drawn to her subjects on an intuitive level. In her paintings she tries to capture this psychological resonance. In Untitled Amini renders a portrait of a woman, inserting a hairdo where the face should be. It creates a sensation of absurdity and muteness that’s both humorous and menacing.
