"Here, I invite you into my dream, where if you look very close, you can find a part of yourself or your dreams."
There were no rules for this piece—which means heaven to any artist. It is a brilliant idea to have artists use a column as a canvas to create different art pieces, which gives every work an individual identity and creates a unique environment.
My works are mostly very serious, but this time I decided to create from my dreams. The designs come from nature and mythic symbols from my Kurdish roots. Combining simple abstract painting and geometric cut mirrors, the piece balances between near and far, reality and dreams, or the earth and stars. Normally, these very thin mirrors are used as interior decoration in palaces and mosques in my home country of Iran. Mirrors are cut to form geometric shapes, joined together in intricate patterns that cover entire walls. Here the mirrors are used as a sort of drawing, pulling in textures from the surrounding walls in their reflections. Here, I invite you into my dream, where if you look very close, you can find a part of yourself or your dreams.
