گل به عنوان یک ماده با ویژگی های منحصر به فرد خود ، در ذهن هنرمندی که فراسوی کار در حوزه سفالگری رایج آنرا درک می کند ، آفریده ای متفاوت را به نمایش می گذارد . این تفاوت اگر چه در مواردی ممکن است چندان خلاقانه به نظر نرسد ، اما بازگوی فهمی است از کار با گل که در نظام سنتی اتفاق نمی افتد . با این همه این بینش نیز مغایر با آفرینش های کاربردی نیست ؛ بلکه تفاوت در کشف و معرفی بیانگری هایی است که این ماده می تواند حوزه های متفاوت کاربردی و تجسمی را پوشش دهد ؛ ویژگی که سایر مواد کمتر آنرا دارند. پ
آثاری که در این مجموعه گردآمده و به نمایش درآمدند بازنمود بخشی از قابلیت های گل است که می تواند جهان وسیعی از تخیلات افراد گوناگون را تجسم بخشد و آنها را به رغم تفاوت در ظاهرفرم ها و ایده های آثارشان در درکی این چنین از این ماده کنار هم قرار دهد . این آثار در طول یکسال گذشته ، در تعاملی از فرایند آفرینش با کارگاه من تولید شدند و از هر نظر که قابل نقد باشند واجد این ویژگی مثبت هستند که بازگوی امکانات متعدد سرامیک برای دستیابی به مسیرهای شخصی یک هنرمند است ، ویژگی که شما جوانه هایی از آن را در آثار این گروه می بینید. پ
In the mind of an artist whose knowledge and imagination extend beyond the realm of pedestrian pottery; clay, as a substance having its own exclusive features, would present a creative challenge different from the customary styles. Although such difference may not seem so innovative in some cases, but it retells an idea that does not take place in the traditional order regarding clay work. After all, not only such insight doesn't contradict the created works having practical purpose, but also is a means for discovering and expressing distinct utilitarian as well as visual avenues that clay is capable of as opposed to other materials that have less of such quality.
The works of art that have been gathered and exhibited in this collective set, re-portray a
portion of clay's capabilities that can be incorporated into the vast world of imagination of
diverse individual artists where their understanding of this material's conceptual potential, enables them to come together despite the differences in their artworks regarding appearance, style, form and idea. The exhibited works of art were produced during the past year as a reaction to the process of creation within my studio. In any fashion that such works may be criticized, they possess one positive characteristic that reiterates the numerous possibilities of ceramics in which an artist can explore personal directions. The traces of such characteristic can be seen in the works of artists included in the mentioned collective set.
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.
