NAVINE G. KHAN-DOSSOS

Navine G. Khan-Dossos’s painting practice is based on a rigorous training in Islamic art and History of Art.  But instead of following the expected religious, cultural or academic frameworks of these modes, she has asked more of her work.

 

Khan-Dossos is constantly dealing with the complexities of Orientalism and Other, in both historical and contemporary contexts, developing a form of geometric abstraction that merges the traditional aniconism of Islamic art with the algorithmic nature of the interconnected world we live in. It is not abstract in the sense we understand from the western history of this development in art, but something essentially informational.

 

The subject of her work is often the conflicted and complex relationship of Islam to the West, which is an inescapable and vital subject to be dealing with today. Khan-Dossos studied History of Art at Cambridge University, Arabic at Kuwait University, Islamic Art at the Prince’s School of Traditional Art, and completed her MA in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art & Design. She was a participant at the Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht, and has taken part in residencies with the A.M. Qattan Foundation, Leighton House Museum, and the Delfina Foundation.
