a Pack of Cigarettes in Exile
Solo Painting Exhibition of Roya Abdousi
May - June 2017 / Tehran / HOOM Gallery / Opening Friday May 5th
Separation is full of inadequacy and loneliness; a mute shout which has no limits for imagination and complaint. The complaint, with a long background in art and literature of Iran, gets a form of contemporary art in Roya Abdousi works. Figurative elements of
"Gol o Morq"(the flower and the bird), with a history in ancient Iranian art, are the symbols of romantic secrecy and the still life selection puts a new list of codes in front of the audience. The artist starts a special enquiry for the common sense of herself and the poet, and repeats the experience in her soul once more. The sense of the experience can be seen in all the artworks and has merged with the artist.
The mettle of the fine symbols and how to arrange them both in words and figures has merged with the artist and the poet and presents a new subject to study for the audience.
