From Dry -River to Don -River
This body of work portrays sights that I have seen throughout my travels from Iran to Canada. The process begins with a photograph, which provides a point of reference. The photograph was valued for its compositional elements; the arrangement of forms and spaces. Paintings flow organically from imagination, merging reality and illusion, demonstrated by exaggerated pink skies and red mountains. I achieve excitement in my compositions by employing movement and perception of depth. I’ve always been interested in exploring the vital realm of feelings, desires and life energies.
Nearing the end of this series, I’ve come across a new beginning: a vast place where urban and rural landscapes combine and merge. I aim to obtain the mystery of interconnectedness within the boundless spaces that surround me.
From East to West
From natural to industrial
From cradle to grave
All is suffering,
Seldom joy and enthusiasm
A short journey, passing slowly
The present, underappreciated
Wandering amongst forms and colours,
Grasp oneness; waves and particles
Tension of light and dark
Vibration of colour and sound
To see the eternal dance of life and death
