Carving out his unique place on the contemporary art scene as master puppeteer, Hormazd Narielwalla has instilled new life into paper shapes from the past. Paper Dolls collects Narielwalla’s signature abstract collage artworks on vintage sewing patterns, alongside a set of figurative self-portraits in which Narielwalla casts himself as a mysterious Geisha. Inspired by an encounter in the streets of London’s fashionable Soho district, the artist is lured into a journey of self-exploration. He brings us along for the journey, as he conjures up paper dolls, hidden gardens, people, and portraits. Uniquely beautiful, Paper Dolls explores rich layers of meaning in paper through thirty of Narielwalla’s symbolically sublime abstract patterns.
