Mainly self taught in the art of silk screen printing she has worked from art based practice through to fashion, music, illustration and advertising. Her work is experimental, intuitive and often playful, with bold colour and graphic elements a key reference. Science, space travel and colour theory hold great interest and are often referenced in her work.
The works created for Riviera are an extension of the themes I have been working on this year – friendships, relationships, self perception, the shadows of things left unsaid. Riviera brings me memories of a summer spent in the Mediterranean with a friend, the happiest of times as a young teenager, very much present in the moment but aware of the uncertainty of what was to come, knowing that everything was about to change. The ideas behind these perspex pieces are as much about the shadows cast as the silkscreen prints themselves.
“An exploration of tessellating shapes and curves, each print is layered with a variety of patterns that blend and mesh, coming in and out of focus as the viewer moves throughout the space. The sum of these individual elements elicits a visceral sense of awe and respect for each piece’s uniquely flawed beauty, allowing Banazi to play upon the notion of what our aesthetic ideals are and who gets to decide them”
