Thank you!
Farah Ossouli’s work draws on her wide-ranging background in, experience with, and passionate involvement in painting, photography, film, animation, graphic design, literature, and theatre. Born in 1953 in Zanjan, Iran, she graduated from the Tehran High School of Fine Arts (Honarestane Honarhaye Ziba) in 1971 and received her B.A. from the Department of Fine Arts (Daneshkadeye Honaryae Ziba), Tehran University, Iran in 1977. After 1979, she and the many other artists who remained in the country during the period of post-revolutionary cultural isolation were forced to reexamine their identities. This reexamination propelled Ossouli to pioneer the revitalization of miniature painting, which was one of the many genres she had studied in art school.

Today, she occupies a prominent position as an artist in Iran not only because of her unique artistic style and prodigious production of works but also because of her active involvement in Iranian contemporary art. For example, she was a co-founder of the first women’s art group (DENA) in 2001, which introduced three generations of Iranian women artists to the art world both in Iran and abroad through workshops and travelling exhibitions. Two of her most recent major shows were held at the Ludwig Museum in Germany and the Imam Ali Museum of Art in Iran. She has also exhibited across the Middle East, Europe, Africa, North America, and Asia.

  • 2. Although the golden age of Persian miniature painting lasted from the15th to the 17th century, the practice persists today, and references to itcan be seen in the work of many contemporary Iranian artists.Farah Ossouli, the Grande dame of contemporary Persian art, was one ofthe first artists to appropriate miniature painting as an authentic,personal, and contemporary artistic practice for portraying women’s lives.The gouache paintings on view depict the predicament of women inregions of conflict, transnationally and transculturally. While herpainting style may appear traditional, a closer look yields layers ofmeaning, references, and innovations. Today, she occupies a prominentposition as an artist in Iran not only because of her unique artistic styleand prodigious production of works but also because of her activeinvolvement in Iranian contemporary art.Her works are widely collected. Most recently, her work was acquired by:• The Metropolitan Museum Of Art, New York, United States• Devi Art Foundation, New Delhi, India• Bank Of Pasargad, Tehran, Iran• Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, Tehran, Iran• Tropen Museum, Amsterdam, Netherlands• Ludwig Museum, Koblenz, Germany

  • 14. ARTIST STATEMENTSelf-portraits from Ars PoeticaThese works depict aspects of women’s lives. In each work, a womanis depicted surrounded by weapons – guns, fighter jets, knives, androckets – while the words of Forugh Farrokhzads poems frame theimages and help to reveal the women’s stories. Wounded birds, ablood-colored river, and other elements show symbolically thatwhat we see at first sight is not the reality. For example, in one ofthe works, a woman is covering her mouth with her ownhands, while the accompanying poem reads, “I want to sayno, no, no...” Around that poem, there is a border filled withguns, representing that which is preventing her from saying "No."In another image, a woman is depicted in a seductive pose;however, a closer examination reveals that she has beenbeheaded.The contrast between appearance and reality that exists in myown surroundings is a motivation for my works.
