SAMIRA KHADIVIZAND (born. 1983) is an Iranian Australian visual artist, based in Melbourne
Her focus is on portraying cultural, social and emotional roots where she blends her own feelings and personal experiences to relay the message to the viewer.
She born with a rare irregularities and wrinkles on her eye’s cornea, that makes her vision blur and fuzzy without the aid of particular contact lenses. This indeed helped her to develop a style and composition, where there is no particular border and definition for the objects. This creates a dynamic and fluidity in her paintings to depict movement and time. Creating setups of surreal layers and frames of ordinary spaces and elements is of particular interest for her. Samira’s style falls on a combination of abstract and surrealism with magical reality narration. A real event, activity or feelings laid on a canvas from an unconventional point of view and angle, with distorted position and order of objects and spaces to projects a magical picture of something very familiar.
