Artist Nagihan Seymour returns to The Lightbox with a new show The Four Elements

Artist Nagihan Seymour returns to The Lightbox with a new show ‘The Four Elements’ following her successful solo exhibition in 2017. In this exhibition, artist Nagihan Seymour explores through her designs the classical elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire, which were believed by the ancient Greeks to explain the nature and complexities of all matter. The exhibition includes paintings and ceramics incorporating natural pigments and precious metals with each wall space of the gallery symbolising one of the elements.

Exhibition Dates: 25th May 2021 to 6th June 2021
Venue: The Lightbox, Chobham Road, Woking, Surrey, GU21 4AA

 Drawing inspiration from nature in the design process, one of the more challenging aspects of her works is to simplify and stylise the infinite complexity of the natural world and apply that in her
 patterns and designs. Nagihan’s paintings are symmetrical designs consisting of naturalistic floral ornamentation or patterns with simple expression. Gold is the main material used in the paintings complimented with acrylic, gouache and watercolour paints on handmade and treated papers. Her paintings are free
 hand drawn and painted incorporating 11 to 24 carat gold.

 Nagihan specialises in Tezhip, the art of illumination and sacred geometry. Although originally a materials engineer, she has practiced this art since her university years, studying traditional arts in her hometown of Istanbul. After her first solo exhibition at The Lightbox in 2017, she became a full time artist painting and creating ceramics from her studio in Horsell, Woking.
