I have since long wondered what the next evolution in Iranian aesthetics and art would be.
Nasir al Mulk Moque – Shiraz – 1888
Monir Farmanfarmaian – 1973 Mirror and reverse glass painting
Samira Alikhanzadeh 2010 – Mirror on board
And now, this:
Of course (!): take those wonderful shapes and forms, and give them life, make them dance, let them come alive. I salute you Negar Emdadian you have thrown us into the next chapter.
Art history is a wonderful thing. A story telling of our times with its own enchanting vocabulary. Iran’s history told in 4 brilliant acts.
Thanks to The Tehran Times for bringing Negar to my attention.
