About the Artist:
As a child growing up in Tehran, Iran, Taraneh Mozafarian dreamed of becoming a famous artist. Although she had numerous interests in different fields, art was the strongest aspect of her life from which she could never seem to part. Following her graduation in Sociology, she moved to Los Angeles to continue her education, where she continues to reside. She obtained her Master's Degree in Business Administration and later responding to the call of her real love, she spent eight years attending several colleges to study art.

Descending from a rich Persian cultural heritage, including a family of jewelers, Taraneh views her works as gems, which resonate with a history of crafts, such as gold and copper smithing, as well as rug weaving and quilting. These influences are clearly present in her copper series. Working with copper mixed media, Taraneh finds the metal full of surprises and not easy to control. "When I work with copper I feel like I am working with a living substance. The metal while being a cool material has warm vibrant colors. I feel like the copper is alive and has its own intelligence. I allow the piece to guide me, yet the final image reflects the material’s innate qualities, as well as my thoughts and feelings". A graceful balance, a great sense of pattern and a meticulous attention to detail characterizes each of her sublime works.
