Art is my key to understanding the current underlying my identity and the world. In doing so, I derive much of my inspiration from my own life.
As an Iranian growing up in post-1979 Tehran, I have experienced separation and uprooting in its different manifestations. In my art I decode the ways in which these events have marked me through poetry, craft, and the body.
I work in different mediums and my process at times involves deconstructing and reconstructing an image or object. Some of my inspiration stems from Persian poetry and biographical documents investigating a landscape of longing, and displacement. In doing so, I am very interested in exploring the language of the material I use. The craft-intense process which I use in making much of my work mimics digital processes at times, creating juxtaposition in exploring new distortions and blurring the lines between design, craft and fine art.
