ABOUT

WHAT IS MOR ?

Make on Repeat is the concept of constant creation and cyclical exploration of curiosity expressed in the continuity of countless forms.

 

In other words, I love making things.

Artist Statement

Alyag’s work engages with ideas of cultural practice who's obsessive tendencies have developed into minute, ornamental accretions exploring identity, story telling and the merging of craft and art. through multimedia techniques, including ceramic, metal, wood, drawing, 3D paper and print she references traditional artisanal work as a way to connect and reimagine her lineage. Malkhassian is currently exploring form and its interaction with the body; protection, pattern healing and accretion. The meditative aspect of making through repetition and mundane action, have become a symbolic representation of the interconnectedness of life.
