Paintings by Asiyeh Esfandiari
July 17, 2000
I found Asiyeh Esfandiari's
paintings by chance as I was surfing the Persian
Art web site.
People in her paintings do not have a strong
presence. They seem to be defined only as outlines or strong colors representing
unpredictable outside forces. They are a reminder of the Iranian belief
in fate or qesmat.
Asiyeh Esfandiari started painting in1991.
She attended Rasam Art School and graduated in 1993. She has exhibited
her work in three galleries in Tehran. Esfandiari's latest paintings were
also on display at the international contemporary artists' fair in Tehran
earlier this year.
