We are pleased to invite you to the preview of Homeira Kiani Rad's exhibition 'Kilim' at ISLAND Arts Centre.


About the exhibition:

Originally from Iran, Homeira has a degree in traditional Persian miniature art.  Now based in Belfast she completed an MA in Applied Arts at the Ulster University. ​Over the years Homeira has shown in many group shows, including the Royal Ulster Academy, this solo exhibition features work that is influenced by both eastern and western styles of art. From a past time, miniature inspired, highly detailed paintings are complemented by works that, while contemporary in style, are rooted in tradition.


'My current work explores Persian motifs. I combine colourful traditional geometric patterns with modern art. The body of work in this exhibition was created over a mindful and momentous two years of discovery and spiritual connection. The repetitive nature of drawing meticulously detailed line drawings simultaneously demonstrates both chaos and calm. I enjoyed using luminous and low saturated colours to create these new works.'


ISLAND Arts Centre, Lagan Valley Island, Lisburn BT27 4RL


Open Mon-Sat from 9.30am-4.30pm, plus additional evening hours dependant on programme.
