Rahimi's abstract wall sculptures employ broad strokes of paint affixed with ceramic shards of her own design. Choosing patterns to represent societal rules and customs, Rahimi draws and paints on unfired clay tiles, then breaks them apart to represent a state of pot-oppression-ruins become a catalyst for new perspectives and growth. She reassebles the broken pieces and then fires, glazes, and attaches the reordered tiles to her painted surface, imagining liberation from cultural pressure, with a mending and transformation taking place I'm the process.
