Maryam Mohry has had the habit of making cut-outs from her children’s books in order to narrate her own version of the story since when she was a child. In the process, she takes every single thought, ordinary event, movie or picture as a serious source of inspiration and makes small sketches that eventually translate into genuine stories in her artworks. The sarcasm and her passion to fully immerse in the process of creation and experimentation, fueled by a playful childlike sensibility all add to her unique works. Mohry keeps the “game” of storytelling connected within all her works by offering notes of cartoonish eeriness in the humanlike expressions of her characters and addressing environmental concerns in a playful set up. Her impulsive stories are crafted without trying to hide them behind various layers of paint, making them effortless and plausible.
