Description

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.
