Nu Algue - red abstract limited edition etching by Malika Agueznay

$ 2,800
  • Description
    Bright red abstract etching on paper by Moroccan artist Malika Agueznay. Limited edition. Edition 9/20. Signed. Offered framed.

    Malika Agueznay (1938) is a pioneer Moroccan abstract painter and engraver. Her artwork features intricate interweaving and overlapping organic forms which she calls “algae.” Her work is often abstract, and sometimes representational, but always full of movement.

    Agueznay is greatly influenced by Arabic script and calligraphy, which used traditionally to beautifully decorate Moroccan architecture. Her “algae” forms often feature stylized Arabic script of her own shape and design. When she uses this script it is always with the same five words: Peace, Love, Compassion, Modesty and Generosity. She began using these words in her art as she felt the traditional Moroccan values these words represent are being eroded in of her country’s contemporary culture. Her work is about the profound messages of beauty, sincerity and gentleness.
