Iranian-born, Dubai-based artist Nima Nabavi seeks to explore the matrix of logic and order belying the natural world. Inspired by his grandfather, who had been a master geometer for 50 years, the artist has adopted a mathematical approach to meticulously weave intricate geometries with sublime precision. In '2017.06.04', titled after the date of its creation in keeping with the artist's practice, viewers encounter a seemingly computer-generated graph. A close inspection, however, reveals the artist's impeccable dedication and patience in drawing each line. As a result, an allegedly digital image is, in fact, a testament to human steadiness and dedication. Subtle, elegant and minimalist, Nima's drawing reveals the inherent beauty that underlies the structure of our shared reality.
