    Afruz Amighi was raised in New York by Zoroastrian and Jewish parents. Her work is infused with global awareness and a distanced view of her native country’s turmoil. Vegetal and geometric patterns bridge contemporary sensibilities and artistic references from Iran, Ottoman Turkey, and Andalusia. Still Garden is created by the projection of light through a hand-cut stencil sheet of woven polyethylene (the material used to construct refugee tents).
