"Winter/Spring 2000"
2000-02-01 until 2000-06-30
Dideh-Iranian Fine Art
Munich, , DE Germany

With the Winter/Spring 2000 exhibition Dideh the full-service Iranian-art gallery on the Internet expands on its first show of contemporary fine art from Iran. Beginning on January 1, Gallery Dideh has enlarged its current exhibition by including works by Koorosh Shishehgaran, Nima Petgar and Farideh Lashai, three of the most prominent Iranian masters working today.

Describing Shishehgaran s views as manifested in his works of art, writer and poet Javad Mojabbi writes that he conceives the modern world as being dynamic, complex, ever-changing and on the verge of explosion. To express his mental picture of modern life, Shishehgaran uses lines with energetic twists in a natural and playful rather than a deliberate manner, characterized by a touch of appealing euphoria.

Nima Petgar, born in 1946 in Tehran, left for Italy in 1968 to study at the Rome Art Academy, from which he graduated in 1973. His paintings are directly influenced by the oeuvre of the Italian master Emilio Greco and his mental master the Japanese philosopher Ukiyo-e. His works are notable for their rich archaic language combined with Oriental fragility. His series Big Portraits, which are a form of modern portraiture, display unparalleled mastery. Iranian art historian Ali Asghar Gharebaghi describes these as expressionless faces lying somewhere between the living, breathing fleshiness of an animate organism and the cold remoteness of a stone portrait bust.‰

Farideh Lashai, who studied decorative arts in Vienna, is one of the most notable female Iranian artists of her generation. Although she now lives in Tehran, she has been exhibiting her works in Europe and America since 1967. With her many solo and group presentations abroad and at home, she has become Iran‚s most active painter. The roots of her art are in Iran, but the artistic traditions of both Eastern and Western painting can be seen in her work a fact that surely contributes to its success. Lashai s paintings exhibit a new and modern approach to nature, combining a silent, gentle atmosphere with dynamic brushwork.
