watercolor on packing paper
18 x 20
Going through the Iranian revolution and being a refugee I have seen pain, suffering, and death. I am sensitive to the hardships of others who have experienced ruptures in their lives. My paintings show the things I have lived through, and the subjects I paint show resilience and hope for a better future.
I reach beyond the surface of my subject’s face to portray their inner beauty that emanates from them. My paintings are made on a range of media, each connecting to stories of precarity, movement and overcoming, through materials such as rice paper, tree bark, and packing paper.
