Born in Tunisia, Emna Zghal is a visual artist who is based in the United States. She works in both painting and printmaking, and is fascinated with colour, pattern, nature and poetry. Zghal’s abstract patterns do not echo at first glance the traditional Islamic geometric pattern, but they are a continuation of an aesthetic vision of infinity. Her works have been published in “The New York Times”, “The Philadelphia Inquirer”, “Artforum”, “ARTnews” and “The New Yorker”, in addition to many Tunisian publications.
