ویکتوریا لَتیشوا میگوید: شیرین اتحادیه از طریق رنگهای گامای ماورایی روی بومهایی بهاندازه ابر، ما را با احساسات غیرمنتظره روبرو میکند. این هنرمند با ایدهای از جهان انتزاعی و با قصد گشودن یک راز مرموز حقیقت مطلقی را ارائه میدهد که وابسته به او و مخاطبان است. آثار هنری او زنانه و قوی است و قلمرو حرکتی ابدی را آشکار میکند - حرکت زندگی مانند وزش باد در یک دشت یا حرکت کاروانی که به قطب دیگری مهاجرت میکند. احساسات غیرمنتظره در هر حرکتی مشهود است؛ غم، اندوه یا مالیخولیا، یا استقبال از هر احساس دیگری از خلقت انسان بازی بین تکنیکها و رنگهای لطیف ما را به سمت ابت معنوی که در هر موجودی وجود دارد سوق میدهد. نقاشی شیرین اتحادیه باعث میشود مخاطب زندگی را ستایش کند
شیرین اتحادیه در باره این نمایشگاه میگوید: نقاشی آدمها در این نمایشگاه را باید خودتان نگاه و حستان را نسبت به آنها تجربه کنید. در بیشتر تابلوها آنها کنارهم هستند و از هم بیگانه
Shirin Gallery is proud to unveil the solo exhibition of Shirin Ettehadieh titled People ...
Shirin Ettehadieh is graduated from Polytechnic of South Bank London and “École du Louvre”, Paris. She founded “Ketab-e Azad” in Tehran, capital of Iran in 1979. Her last exhibition in Shirin Gallery was “In the absence of people”.
Victoria Latysheva says:” through colors of transcendental gamma on canvases with the size of a cloud, Shirin Ettehadieh brings us to the emotion of unexpected feelings. With an idea of the abstract world and the intention to open a mysterious secret, the artist presents an absolute truth – dependent on her and the audience.
Feminine but strong, her works of art reveal the eternal motion realm – a motion of life as if to be a wind in a field, the motion of a caravan migrating to another pole. The unexpected feelings present in any motions, sorrow or melancholy, or welcoming any other feeling of human creation.
The game between severe technics and tender mammary colors drifts us to the sense of spirituals beginnings that exist in any creature. Shirin’s painting makes the audience glorify life, chant the beauty of the encounter.
As she says :” About the people in these paintings, you have to see and feel them yourself. In most of the paintings, they are side by side yet distant.”
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.
