Nastaran Shahbazi: The Sun Also Rises Past

Feb 19 to March 1, 2016 ,
4:00 PM
- Tehran, Iran

The Sun Also Rises
The Sun Also Rises is a selection of paintings and drawings created over the last two years during my stay in Hong Kong. Most are inspired by real lives, and events dating from my childhood until the present day. Each work exists individually, but together they can be read like a novel – a long lifetime divided into different chapters. Their inherent darkness is not just black; it is also yellow, the color of Van Gogh’s sunflowers – so vivid and alive – red, green and blue.
Yet the characters in these paintings and drawings are not hopeless: they are resilient and strong and some of them are even playing with the madness that exists in this world in which we live. They want to be loved and to love… they are mostly
on the road, constantly changing destinations and countries, because they want to find a utopia to believe in.
