Aisha Cahn

Untitled 5, 2013

Aisha Cahn, Untitled 5

Aisha Cahn is a contemporary British artist whose current series of work entitled Embrace is inspired by the science of cells, and the narrative of her mother’s encounter with cancer.

Combining knowledge gleaned after visiting leading laboratories researching cancer, with her experience with her mother, Aisha found hope. Since graduating with an MA in Fine Art from Central St Martins, Cahn has had a series of solo and group shows.

Cahn’s paintings exude calmness, serenity and harmony - all of which reflect a contemplative form. Each painting is built up in a series of layers, with revelations expressed through the varied realisation of colours, processes and techniques, reflecting the evolution of her research and understanding.

From the initial source of inspiration, to the final layer of paint on the canvas, Aisha has continued to explore the theme of spiritual art and science, a common thread through her work.
