Rooted in Sufi values, inspired by the poetry of Rumi, Hafez and contemporary poets such as Sohrab Sepehri, I use acrylics and mixed media to make visible the invisible. Using texture, layers and colours, while engaging in dialogue with Persian music and poetry, I aim to bring to life the ebbs and flows of the soul on its quest for a higher meaning. You will be able to read, hear, and feel each piece.
My new collection, the Rhythm of Life, is an exploration of my relationship with time. The series originated from the time famine many of us are experiencing. “What is clear for all of us who are starved for time, is that the problem of time is not more time, not more efficiency, not even in itself longer biological life, not children, not artistic creations that we pretend will bring us immortality, not some sentimental relationship to imaginary gods,” says Jacob Needleman in Time and the Soul. “The answer to the problem and the sorrow of time is the experience of meaning.”
