Fatima Garzan

Artist Statement

I work without any predetermined concept or source of imagery.  I improvise and  use repetition, patterning, and geometric shapes in my work  and find that improvisation generates new ideas and concepts. This process of repetition stress the concept of meditation and is reminiscent of hand made Persian rugs and the rich colours of Persian tiles which are created using the same concept.

I use  painting, print, and installation  in my art making as suits my projects.


Fatima Garzan was born in Tehran, Iran.  Fatima has a BA in Economics and studied Fine Arts at the University of Waterloo where she received her Honours Bachelor of Arts in painting and printmaking in 2005.  She has exhibited in Canada and abroad.  Her works are included in the Canada Council Art Bank, City of Kitchener, the University of Waterloo prints archive, and private collections. She is one of the founding members of BOX   a non- profit art initiative in the Waterloo Region.
