As an artist, I have always tried to reflect the concepts and dynamisms of the community in which I live, in my works. In the “Dread Place” collection created over the past six years, family; homeland; religion; political power; ideals and visions of the future have been the intellectual basis of its creation. During creation process of these works, Iranian painting as a historical-artistic experience has a colorful presence in my subconscious and the natural environment of where I lived in as a child has caused those concepts to appear in a similar context and provide the Iranian painting and its technical foundations with a new discourse. The use of sewing patterns in the background of this collection, in addition to creating the space of curved lines in Iranian painting, is also reminiscent of de-patterning to me.
