Mysteries in Colour

Art by Mazarine Memon

What do you see ?

“The job of the artist is to engage.”

I truly believe that art must engage the viewer, which is what I attempt every time I see a blank canvas. My works Mysteries in Colour use the Pareidolia
Phenomena to challenge the viewer to decipher the mystery. The abstract shapes and forms at first look just pretty on the canvas until your brain decodes the image and finds the subject. When that happens, the art is not just pretty, shapes and forms suddenly come alive and have meaning.

 I enjoy being a fly on the wall when people see my work for the first time. I see them go, “I saw it” and yet someone else will see something more.

Her Profile

An accomplished award-winning 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 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 actually exist, but in her case she actually hides the stimulus in there. No wonder critics have tagged her style as “mysteries in colour,” you need to find the clues before the subject of the artwork reveals itself. When that happens it is a aha moment.

Mazarine

Mazarine was born in Bombay (Mumbai) to an eccentric, fun loving, Zoroastrian (Parsee) family. By default, she is an endangered species as there are less the 100,000 Parsees left.  She is of Iranian ancestry, Indian by birth, Italian at heart and Canadian by choice.

She lives in Toronto with her husband and they have two kids away at University.  She is an artist by profession, but believes her day job is to be “Tiger Mom.”

 Mazarine works out of The Art Brewery, her studio (a repurposed garage) and occasionally conducts workshops in Art, Yoga, Reiki and Mediation.
