Kamran Khavarani, Beyond.
Now we can go back to a Khavarani work and look at it through Boime’s new eyes. Realizing Rumi is speaking through Khavarani in images, Boime trusts that this tranquil image does not reflect obliviousness to social realities nor is it a sponsored attempt to restore a sense of normality; it simply springs from a place that is Beautiful. For the first time in his life the art historian is confronted with images outside the normal arena of art criticism where the work is transcended intellectually. Rather, he is given an exercise in submission to the sublime where the idea is to trust the work to transcend him.
