Jamali’s Pigment Dispersions are created on tiled cork, canvas, and wood. When finished, the brilliant colors simmer beneath a surface that mimics translucent porcelain. The visual statement is powerful and complete; what may appear opposite or contrary is equally complementary and interconnected.
This medium came about as a practical response, as Jamali explains, “I laid a very large canvas on the ground, surrounded by organic pigments. I wanted something I could float to make dispersions. I went to the supply shop and purchased gallons of different substances, pigments and paints. Eventually I discovered the right formula that allowed the liquid pigments to float intact and disperse above the surface - and maintain the purity and inherent color of the pigments, even when left exposed to the weather for prolonged periods.”
