Tehran

    همیشه  نقاشی از طبیعت را در طبیعت  انجام داده ام  و هر لحظه  شاهد  تغییرات  محسوس               

    و غیر محسوس آن  بوده ام ٬آن لحظات ناب  مرا به درک مختصری از لذت احساس حضور و             

     فهمیدن لحظه اکنون میکشانید.  همیشه تلاش میکنم  بیاد آورم که اکنون واقعیت دارد و گذشته  

     و حال فقط در تخیل و پندار آدمی است.      

     سال ها از آسمان  عکس گرفته ام٬ اشکال متنوع  و  گونه گون ابرهای سفید را دوست داشتم.     

     آسمان چونان تصویری بی بدیل همیشه در برابر چشمان ماست٬حیرت انگیز٬زیبا و وسیع. 

     در عین حال که  عکس های آسمان  به دلیل اینکه  عکس است٬ ماهیتاً  از جنس دیگری است. 

     به این معنی که دیگر آن آسمان نیست و فقط تصویری است که  در لحظه ای ثبت شده  و دیگر  

     تکرار نمی شود و نخواهد شد.

     با تصویر برداری از آسمان با آسمان رابطه دیگری برقرار شد٬ بعد آسمانهای خودم را نقاشی 

     کردم ؛ و  باز نقاشی ها اتفاق دیگری است که دیگر نه آن عکس هاست که ماهیتاً متفاوت از آن   

     تصاویر می باشد٬ در عین حال  برداشتی است از آن  تصاویر و مشاهده آسمان.

                                                         همه در جنبش و دایم در آرام   

                                                                           نه آغاز یکی  پیدا  نه انجام

I have always been surrounded by nature when painting it and in every moment I have been a witness of both extraordinary and subtle changes in my surroundings and those moments of euphoria and peace of mind widened my perspective, inviting me to appreciate the beauty of presence and the present, fleeting, moment. I constantly try to remind myself that this moment is reality; the past and present are merely a human conception. 

I was motivated to photograph the sky for many years because I liked the detailed perfection, or rather, imperfection and diversity of soft white clouds in various forms.  The sky is incomparable to anything else on any scale; it is always in sight and never seizes to be anything less than breath taking, beautiful and magnificently vast. Where as the photos of the sky will never add up to the splendid reality of it, solely because we cannot materialise it and do it justice. 

Photos capture moments; once a photo is taken it is no the longer the sky but an image representing a particular time and place which can never be repeated; that moment is gone. After photographing the sky a new connection was made which inspired me to create and conjure up my own skies and once again those paintings would neither be comparable to the photos or the sky, they are something else entirely. My paintings are a personal interpretation and representation of my photos and the sky.

More About Tehran

Overview and HistoryTehran is the capital of Iran and the largest city in the Middle East, with a population of fifteen million people living under the peaks of the Alborz mountain range.Although archaeological evidence places human activity around Tehran back into the years 6000BC, the city was not mentioned in any writings until much later, in the thirteenth century. It's a relatively new city by Iranian standards.But Tehran was a well-known village in the ninth century. It grew rapidly when its neighboring city, Rhages, was destroyed by Mongolian raiders. Many people fled to Tehran.In the seventeenth century Tehran became home to the rulers of the Safavid Dynasty. This is the period when the wall around the city was first constructed. Tehran became the capital of Iran in 1795 and amazingly fast growth followed over the next two hundred years.The recent history of Tehran saw construction of apartment complexes and wide avenues in place of the old Persian gardens, to the detriment of the city's cultural history.The city at present is laid out in two general parts. Northern Tehran is more cosmopolitan and expensive, southern Tehran is cheaper and gets the name "downtown."Getting ThereMehrabad airport is the original one which is currently in the process of being replaced by Imam Khomeini International Airport. The new one is farther away from the city but it now receives all the international traffic, so allow an extra hour to get there or back.TransportationTehran driving can be a wild free-for-all like some South American cities, so get ready for shared taxis, confusing bus routes and a brand new shiny metro system to make it all better. To be fair, there is a great highway system here.The metro has four lines, tickets cost 2000IR, and they have segregated cars. The women-only carriages are the last two at the end, FYI.Taxis come in two flavors, shared and private. Private taxis are more expensive but easier to manage for the visiting traveler. Tehran has a mean rush hour starting at seven AM and lasting until 8PM in its evening version. Solution? Motorcycle taxis! They cut through the traffic and any spare nerves you might have left.People and CultureMore than sixty percent of Tehranis were born outside of the city, making it as ethnically and linguistically diverse as the country itself. Tehran is the most secular and liberal city in Iran and as such it attracts students from all over the country.Things to do, RecommendationsTake the metro to the Tehran Bazaar at the stop "Panzda Gordad". There you can find anything and everything -- shoes, clothes, food, gold, machines and more. Just for the sight of it alone you should take a trip there.If you like being outside, go to Darband and drink tea in a traditional setting. Tehranis love a good picnic and there are plenty of parks to enjoy. Try Mellat park on a friday (fridays are public holidays), or maybe Park Daneshjou, Saaii or Jamshidieh.Remember to go upstairs and have a look around, always always always! The Azadi Tower should fit the bill; it was constructed to commemorate the 2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire.Tehran is also full of museums such as:the Contemporary Art Museumthe Abghine Musuem (glass works)the 19th century Golestan Royal Palace museumthe museum of carpets (!!!)Reza Abbasi Museum of extraordinary miniaturesand most stunning of all,the Crown Jewels Museum which holds the largest pink diamond in the world and many other jaw-dropping jewels.Text by Steve Smith.
