“Here on the edge of the river,
the motifs are very plentiful, the same subject seen from a different angle
gives a subject for study of the highest interest and so varied that I think I
could be occupied for months without changing my place, simply bending a little
more to the right or left. Everything is about to disappear. You have to hurry
up if you still want to see thing.”
I grew up in a crowded city, Tehran, the capital of Iran, in a neighborhood with busy streets and shaggy-haired trees. On it sits a shop which sells a lot of different shapes of doors, each with a different handle, a lot of buses at the bus station in the middle of the street with a lot of hands holding on, a fruit shop with many hands carrying packs of fruit, and a trash bin with a broken wheel next to a lamppost, its’ light making the trash bin dramatic at night.
Before drawing, I could say I come from Tehran and a neighborhood with busy streets.
Line, dot, space, pencil, and paper are my tools to find my way through blindness and help me to show how the things appear in my experience.
I try to find how the autonomy of drawing is related to the significance of objects, perception, and the senses. Drawing is my primary medium and I often incorporate film and painting into the drawing process.
