MYSTERIES IN COLOUR

 
DISCOVER MY ART

Meet the artist

A celebrated, award-winning and eccentric artist, Mazarine has had several sold-out solo and group exhibitions around the world. She has an avid following of collectors and her works have found pride of place all over the world.

Mazarine intelligently plays on a psychological phenomenon known as Pareidolia (parr-i-DOH-lee-a) – a condition which makes people see familiar shapes and patterns where none exist. Mazarine, however intentionally hides clues in her work. Once you’ve found the clue you can decipher the work or the subject reveals itself. When that happens, it is an aha moment.

No wonder critics have tagged her style as “Mysteries in Colour.”

Mazarine graduated with an applied art degree from India’s prestigious Sophia College in 1988 and the Central Saint Martins College of Arts, University of the Arts London, Spring 2006. Over the last 25 years she has continued to learn and evolve as an artist which is apparent from her body of work. One can the growth of an artist and also influences from the very many places and cultures she has lived in. Mazarine is skilled in a variety of mediums from charcoal to encaustic but is biased to inks, acrylics, and oils.

“The principle of true art is not to portray, but to evoke”

We were blessed to meet the lovely Mazarine in Dubai during a very short expat stint in 2003. On viewing some of the works from Mazarines collection I could see that her art was her passion and what she painted came from within. We were so in awe of a piece of art which Mazarine had worked on that we felt we could not return to Australia without it, almost 15 years later it’s still our most favorite piece of art in the house, it’s still a topic of conversation anytime someone sees it for the first time.

I am currently in discussion with Mazarine with regards to commissioning a piece for my daughter based on her latin ballroom dancing, it will be something she can treasure for a lifetime.

Mazarine Memon’s work came to our notice about 5 years ago at a small show in Toronto. Over the years, we have acquired quite a few paintings including a commissioned work that is the centerpiece of our living room. More recently, we were struck by her Baraz chair collection and decided to acquire one right away! So we confess – we are Mazarine’s art fans! She has an effortless sense of drama and her paintings evoke strong emotions that can vary from energy and momentum to absolute bliss. We love the way she coordinates her colors to create harmony as she did for us in the 3-piece commissioned artwork of a rural scene in India. We spoke to her about the concept and she turned a simple idea into 3 brilliantly coordinated yet complex paintings that have changed the look of our entire living room. Mazarine is on her way to becoming a much sought-after global artist – versatile, natural, gifted, highly intelligent and a joy to work with. Sachi

We were first drawn to this piece for the statement that it makes, and how the composition so beautifully captures a woman in thought. The more we looked at it, the more we loved the beautifully depicted figure, hidden among swashes of color.  We also find her pose so interesting, where it portrays simultaneously somebody who is serene, and somebody who is sorrowful. We have received countless compliments on this piece, and we fall in love with it more and more every day.

MY LATEST COLLECTION

Gallery

My latest collection, ‘BARAZ’ is a unique experiment, which aesthetically and eternally unites an authentic antique chair with the original work of a contemporary artist starting a new “happily ever after” story.  Unlike art that hangs on the wall or sits on a shelf, a ‘Baraz’ chair is an art installation that stands on its own four legs in any setting. It is designed to start conversations and is destined to become an heirloom bequeathed from one generation to the next to enjoy and to collect.

I often share new pieces, inspirations, and tips and tricks…

INSPIRATIONS /BLOG

When I start a painting I always ask myself what I would hang on my wall, true aesthetic preference is what appeals to me the most.Visuals are a powerful thing. I have been asked what inspires me and my answer is “everything!” From the wine, I order the cheese I pick, to the lighting in my favorite restaurant to the pattern on a paper napkin. I keep my eyes open, to color, to smell to the touch and it all comes up when I start a collection.

The Process

The transition from portraits to identifying any single form from an abstract colour palette was indeed a challenge. But as Aristotle said, the aim is not about the outward appearance but their inward significance. Colours create their own forms if you allow them to,...
