FERESHTEH SALEHI

Established Dutch artist

 

The history of painting in Iran (Persia) dates back to those days when the earlier inhabitants of this land gave shape to what they perceived from the nature, and for many years the art of traditional Iranian painting, simply adorn nature.

The smooth motion, lively lines and colors give the Iranian artists the possibility to create and illustrate their sincere feelings and stories.

Inspiration and form in Iranian painting are so interdependent that an art work without insight and subject could never lead the viewer to the world of thought and meditation.

The musical intonation of colors pacing with the rhythmic movement of the lines, would lead the viewer to glide his attention from the environs to the centerpiece and the context of the inspiration.

Like Icons, her works portray simplicity, care and hope. They bring to mind all the mystery of what Arabic literary critics call al-sahl al- mumtana a simplicity that is impossible to imitate/explain.

She uses miniature elements and fresco techniques, which results nostalgic idealized paintings, that evokes people feelings of recognition, nostalgia, and love.

Her youth and roots in the ancient Persia, her school and her struggle with the classic views within the European art-world turn out to be an unsuspected source of dreams images.

It is no coincidence that the hands and eyes play such a big part in her works. They form the border and the distinction between inside and outside- between ourselves and the world-between past, present, future.

The human individual does not approach nature as something that is “matter” but respects it as another self! So the flowers, birds and fishes are magnified in her works to enable the viewer to appreciate the delicate beauty of each blossom and incidentally, her loving care in portraying them.

The world can be seen with eyes closed.
