Tarik Hanif. Florilegium
Each of Tarik Hanif pieces has an underlying meaning, that is connected through fundamental principles, imperfection, context, process, and function. When creating he is gripped by an intuition that cannot be communicated through language, instead he explores gesture and physical form to interpret my ideas.
Since university, his focus has been on combining his fashion-learning with painting, to explore and develop a new language of expression. Creating canvases that feature over 300 sewn pockets, to hold flowers that can be interchanged into limitless combinations. The re-ordering and decay of the flowers will slowly transform the colour and silhouette of the painting, making it a living piece.
