Heartbreak Q&A Chain - Maryam Hoseini


The Heartbreak artists Q&A chain is a mini-interview series with the nine contemporary artists exhibiting in Heartbreak. Each interviewee raises a question from their own interests, which the next interview follows up on, approaching from their own perspective. Together, these linked interviews form a 'chain' that collectively asks, and answers, questions that cover a diverse range of topics: from artistic practice to the effects of geopolitics.

Maryam Hoseini: “Everything can be used as a material. Through the process of painting, colour becomes the tool and gets manipulated. The materiality of the paint itself gets lost through the superimposition of layering and paint.”
