The circle is one of the most ancient forms known to man. The discovery of the potential of the humble wheel, an invention that revolutionised our life as we know it is attributed to the discovery of the properties of the circle and its subsequent applications. From science to astrology and geometry the circle has proven itself indispensable. Artist moholinushk, who is based just outside Zurich, Switzerland strives to make this ubiquitous shape visible through her work, highlighting its presence in the mundanity of everyday life. After spending considerable time abroad in countries like India, Japan and Oman. moholinushk's work reflects the inspiration she has drawn from her travels which range from Japanese graphic art to Islamic geometric patterns.
After re-discovering the drawings and photographic essays of the Hungarian artist and photographer László Moholy-Nagy, who also happened to be a professor in the Bauhaus school, moholinushk started to play with circles on paper. Using a variety of mediums ranging from ink to pastel chalks and aquarelles, while at the same time experimenting with different papers in the quest for the perfect foundation medium for her work. In the end, the square format with an interesting structure was the clear winner. She also pays homage to Japanese artist Toko Shinoda, who at the age of 103 this year, continues to create using her hands. Proving that a career in art is timeless.
