"Transposition," the solo exhibit by Lebanese artist Talar Aghbashian, assembles 24 of her most recent landscape paintings, all dated 2018, which blur the boundary between the real and the mythical.Aghbashian takes inspiration from landscapes where she's lived, ventured into or researched online. Taking these landscapes as her starting point, the artist meshed them with strange, otherworldly structures, to create what she terms "hybrids". These man-made interventions are a common theme in Aghbashian's paintings.Aghbashian described how some works were influenced by the pop-up books she read as a child. In "Waterfall," the artist took an image from a pop-up book which she set against a mountainous landscape.Aghbashian began this project two years ago, working on a number of paintings simultaneously to achieve unpredictable results.
