Fine Art Print FAQs
Created in 2023. Iran. There is no doubt that whether we like it or not, our identity is tied to all those who came before us, the generations preceding us, and this is a necessity of social life and being part of a larger whole, like a meaning derived from countless meanings before it. Growing up in Iranian culture often instills the belief that having a sense of belonging requires a sense of harmony, a sense of cooperation, and also a sense of deep attachment to one's heritage. Since Art in Persian culture was not necessarily luxurious or out of reach, from a long time ago, and artistic products were not just for showcasing in the galleries. Rather, they always play a practical role in everyday life, become an inseparable part of daily lives, and enhance the sense of belonging to society. In this way, this piece is inspired by Persian miniature paintings which originated in Ancient Iran. They are usually highly detailed and feature elements such as domes, arches, and geometric patterns. So the architecture depicted in this digital painting is an essential element of the overall composition. Besides using vibrant colors, they are trying to convey meaning and symbolism from traditional motifs and revive the forgotten beauties of the old Persian world, when the culture of Iranian illustrated stories was popular, such as Shahnameh by Ferdowsi or Haft Peykar by Nezami Ganjavi. Although the general forms and shapes have been deconstructed and deformed in certain sections, this approach contributes to their unconventional appearance and aims to create a sense of revolution by seamlessly blending traditional patterns with the unorthodox techniques that digitalization brings to our world. The main point is that 'Authenticity' not only does not fade or disappear over time but also adapts itself to the changing dynamics and harmonizes with each era. Since originality is never like a shell sitting on the surface of something, rather it is a breeze that flows in its interior and it cannot be separated from the totality of that work. Therefore, the beauty of an original design grows over time, with technology never being perceived as a threat to its aesthetic appeal. On the contrary, technology enhances it. All in all, this digital work is the artist's tribute to the authentic history of Iranian Miniature Art and Architecture, since her lifelong concern is to try to fulfill her mission in the evolution of Iranian art by reviving the motifs of Persian carpets and also Miniature paintings.
