Basma Ashworth

My painting and textiles are an exploration of the visual vitality and vivacity of colours that have influenced me throughout my life.

From elaborate silk and velvet hand-dyed cloths worn by my Assyrian people in my village in the mountain of Kurdistan in Syria and Iraq. And natural shades that I discovered in Australia, South America and of course here in West Penwith, to the colours of chemistry, biology and nit to forget rusted metals from my scientific back grounds – all are reflected in my work.

The colours are given form by the shapes and lines of nature, scientific element, architecture, symbols and artefacts.
