Manijeh Yadegar | Elemental

Part II of the travelling exhibtion celebrating the life and work of the late Manijeh Yadegar (1951-2016). Part I opened in Venice in September and Part II showcases a completely different body of work.


Yadegar came over to England from Iran when a child, and greatly admired Chinese painting.  Like her husband, the scultpor Nigel Hall RA, she is interested in pure abstraction, and her work has underlying interest in landscape.   Yadegar describes her approach to painting as intuitive and one particular influence on her work over the years has been Switzerland and its landscape -  the mountains were a regular favourite destination for her and Nigel.
