A part of the critique written by Manouchehr Mughari regarding the visit of my painting exhibition in the Ettela'at newspaper "...The distinguishing  feature of the work of this young artist is the selection of her black and gray background, which is characterized by personality independence and adequate courage. Her works has an apparent balance, but she has active thoughts..."  

​I have always been fascinated with positive and negative space in Eastern art, and with Iranian and Japanese miniatures. Whether I am paining still life, landscape, portrait   - I always strive for a unique and poetic statement. I aim to achieve mysterious simplicity regardless of the medium and I enjoy using oil, acrylics, gouache, crayons, watercolor, pastels and charcoals to produce this effect. 

 

I create silence and latency in my works through scarce use of forms and color, leaving the narrative without the certainty of ending, so that the viewers can imagine their own.  Some of my most simplistic works, such as Desert and Winter, use minimum elements to portray fictional and mysterious worlds. 

 

My figure works are meditations on femininity and discovering the concept of death, life and birth. Blank spaces in these works are filled with nostalgia, expectation and waiting for love. Although most female figures are seen from behind, the viewer feels the restlessness and impatience of a lover in the quietude of the scene.

 

Through use of contradictions and paradox in my work, I frequently engage in relevant societal and cultural issues.
