GENERATIONAL GEOMETRY: Samaya Zakay with Shipibo artisans.
GENERATIONAL GEOMETRY: Samaya Zakay with Shipibo artisans.

Inspired by the beauty and hidden meaning behind its tribal artwork, Samaya Zakay has been travelling around Peru learning more about the geometry that features so prominently in its artisan's artworks and designs.

The work of the Shipibo women from the upper Amazon in Peru in particular caught Samaya's eye. They have a complex form of visionary art whereby geometric patterns convey an all-pervading magic realism.

The art forms are passed down through the generations through sacred initiations, representing an ongoing dialogue with the spiritual world.

Samaya is staging an exhibition to showcase some of the work she has found. Darpan, a musician who has also spent considerable time in Peru will open the exhibition.

It opens on December 7 at Zakay Glass Creations Gallery, 6/102 Centennial Circuit, Byron Bay at 6pm.
