Thank you!

Farah Ossouli’s style evolved over three decades of cultural isolation following the 1979 revolution in Iran. Searching for a meaningful form of self-expression, she found it in the rich tradition and refined beauty of Persian paintings, architecture, and decorative arts. She occupies a prominent position as an artist in Iran not only because of her unique artistic style and prodigious oeuvres but also because of her active involvement in Iranian contemporary art.

  3. 3. ARTIST STATEMENT Hafiz seriesThe 14th century Lyric poet Hafiz, whose emergence in the history of Iran wasinevitable, is a manifestation of the most sublime character traits of Iranianindividuals. He is a symbol of elegance, shrewdness, wisdom, illusion – indeed, allthe aspects of our ancient culture. Iranian visual arts, which possess an inherentillustrative quality, have always been intertwined with poetry. Deletion of weightand shadow in old Persian paintings evokes the imagery of dreams, and theabsence of time provides an opportunity to juxtapose parallel events.My paintings have an undeniable association with this Iranian visual tradition.An understanding of the past makes it easier for me to appreciate the present.However, Hafiz Poetry has never been confined to the past; it belongs to atranscendent world. The fact that he knows neither time nor geographicalboundaries and continues to be present in contemporary Iranian culture suggeststhe immensity of his thinking and the timelessness of his appeal.In this collection, I portray Hafiz alongside angels traveling between the twoworlds; the works attempt to illustrate the sublimity of the transcendent world. Theworks’ colors, composition, and decorations are based on my intuitiveunderstanding of his work, and the music embedded in the poetry influenced themovement, stillness, and silence of the works’ spaces. My interest in and enthusiasmfor Hafiz Poetry has inspired me since childhood, and this collection was shapedduring four years of inner journey with the poet. It is impossible to illustrate allaspects of the voyage that the sonnets invoke through words; these paintingsrepresent the Hafiz of my imagination.

  14. 14. 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
