Statement

The subject of “place” is one of the most influential matters in my life; developed gradually Since my childhood, in moving from one city to another and in recent years in moving from a house to another. Confronting a new place, the effort to build relations, setting and yet again leaving it after a while.
Repeating this behavior for me is a reminiscence of the places which are built for a short period and are not perpetual. I have also been interested in the connection between a person and his place of residence and his or her struggle for survival. Abandoned places, half-finished buildings or structures, and empty spaces are the subject matters of my paintings.
In my “Sepanj” series, I depict roofs, includes places that I’ve spent moments, months or even years under their roofs. Sepanj in Farsi means transient, and is referred to a shelter or a house, lasting or existing only for a short time.
