Maria Mohiuddin: Wax On! Wax Off …Wax On!
June 8, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Conception Arts will showcase Bangladeshi born artist Maria Mohiuddin’s ‘Wax On! Wax Off… Wax On!’ as part of their NYC Contemporary Art Show. Maria Mohiuddin was born alongside her identical twin in Bangladesh in 1973, and has lived in New York for the past 30 years. Mohiuddin’s work is predominantly created in wax and oil pastels – materials that compliment her curious obsession with fire. Her long time experimentation in wax media spans from 2005 to 2017. She began using wax as a predominant tool after destroying a displeasing piece of oil pastel with candle wax. In 2006, she was a part of two group shows with the First Annual Harlem Summer Art show and the Tribeca Art show.
Conception Art Fair is the first art fair which is owned and produced exclusively by women. The fair showcases dynamic presentation of contemporary art, featuring pioneering artists, collectives and galleries with a strong focus on art for social and political change as well as work by women and other under-represented minorities. It also offers collectors the unique opportunity to purchase from cutting edge artists at the tipping point of their career.
