Depictions of LAFT


Space of Laft is textual, discoverable, non-perspective and its architecture is non-objective. A natural logic generates the fragments and the hole, relates them to each other and to the natural context.
Natural-type variety of 
Laft, with its monotone materiality and rhythm of the wind catchers, creates a united image which makes it perceptible in a unique wall.
I am not sure if it had been intentional or intuitive, but the artist has been successful in well representing 
Laftas I described.
Moreover, the authenticity, cultural value, documentary approach and the simplicity of her depictions, give it more value for evaluating.


Mohammad Mohammadzadeh, Architect


The artistís point of view, keeps Laft yet being remembered.
Being an architect and at the same time, a painter is a unique opportunity which depicts in the artistís works.
Sarvenaz refers to Persian FIat tradition of representation and keeps herself away from European tradition of perspective view representation.
Houses in her depictions have got sunburned colors and smell of the gulf sea.
It seems that the artistís world will continue living somewhere in between 
Laft and her paintings in the future, and creates new visions for her.


Mohammadreza Ghorbani, Painter


The main motivation for finding a concrete original subject to create my work, was challenging my confusing status in the border of the two different worlds, I mean art and Architecture, as well as the shortage of real sources helping me through doubtful moments.
I spent less than a decade of my life in the south of Iran and got familiar and interested in its people, nature, Culture, Architecture and art.
I traveled to 
Laft in 2010 to explore the beauty and history behind it when I was a senior Architecture student.
Three years ago, something led my mind to the 
Laft beach again, conquered my mind, and I turned it into pictures.
Moreover, my enthusiasm for experiencing the conventional methods of Persian representation, ended up with the present depictions.

No chance to perceive,

time passing away,

small flowers walked on,

tiny broken twigs underneath footsteps,

gorgeous wild weeds,

hints for perceiving better and further,

tales of the unnoticed twigs and leaves,

unclear sights,

And all my effort to distinguish these blurred scenes!
