Amina Ahmed Biography

The artist unveils what is hidden and seen all at once. Her gossamer-like drawings made on delicate sheets of dark paper carry the imprint of patterns, journeys and travels still to come. Her works stop the participant in stoic silence – as the blackness envelops the viewer and patterns unravel – quietly becoming visible. The series takes its name from the words Prieta, meaning very dark skin, and pitch meaning "the distance between successive corresponding points or lines".
