Mostly consisting of monochrome repetitive linework, Narinna’s drawings come across as both minimal and wrapped in intriguing complexity. As an architect she is naturally interested in spatial representation and yet in her artistic exploration she leaves her background aside to explore the perceptual reading of space. 

Narinna’s thinking line deals in great part with environment of artifice: fragments of the human-made, architecture, the urban; with nature, at times, returning to the scene. For the most part her drawings, particularly her "Colourline grids" series are made up of simple geometric forms, resembling some form of an odd city layout. 

She works mainly on paper, using various media:  two current series of drawings are made with ink / Radical Optimsim/ and  The Colourline Grids is created with oil-based pencils, ranging in dimension from A4 to A1.

Narinna ( Narinè Gyulkhasyan ) was born in 1986 and is based in Rotterdam.
