Farshad Nekoumanesh

Farshad was born in 1974 in Kermanshah and graduated from Tehran University of Arts with a bachelor's degree in cinema. Bariye is the second solo exhibition of Farshad Nekoomanesh in Shirin Gallery.

As the artist says about this exhibition:
Dastgah-e Mahur in Iranian traditional music is similar to a Major step in classical music in terms of distances and is considered happy in terms of feeling. Therefore, there are many happy parts in this Dastgah. Its roots attribute to the Maqams of ancient Iranian music, especially the Maqam of Oshaq.

The Maqam of Bariye between the Maqams of Tanbur and Hoore is undoubtedly one of the most melancholy. Its linguistic origin is from immigration (the irony of death) and is an attribute to Barbad.
The Mahour collection, part of which exhibited at the Zooran Exhibition in the spring of 2018, has now, in a two-year process, directly led to an array of Bariye. This new production may derive from the dark atmosphere of these two years.

The German painter Matthias Illner says about Nekoomanesh's artworks: "Sometimes the silence of an interior or a landscape...
I know very little about Farshad Nekoomanesh. He is a painter in Iran. His self-portrait shows him writing and sitting on a carpet. But, to be precise, one cannot find an actual facial expression that could reveal something about his character or feelings.
Farshad's early portraits are like dark menacing faces in a carpet pattern. So when you wake up from a gloomy, fear-filled dream, you discover demons in your apartment—threatening and ugly expressions that look at me, contrasted by pictures of lovers in nature. Music-making men and women, pictures painted in light colors and that seem like a fairy tale. Unreal. Fairy tales in a painting style show the pure colors and next to each other like a woodcut. As in a puzzle, I, as the viewer, have to assemble the picture in my head to recognize its motif. Different, if painted in the same style, the images of wrestling matches between men.

Some landscapes and interiors seem like silent moments between the moving images. They allow me a break from the moving impressions of his figurative."




Samira Alborzkouh 

Samira Alborzkouh, born in Tehran in 1985, has MA in painting. She has had many groups and solo exhibitions inside and outside of Iran. Handmade Virus is her third solo exhibition.
As the artist says about this exhibition:” Plastics look like figures in my work, and I look at them like creatures living in the sea. Because they are released into the water and move with the movement, they have a greater sense of being alive, which competes with the living creatures, and their number increases every day.
We live in a time in history that has more viruses in the lives of creatures than ever before, and everything manufactured is unplanned.
From the beginning of working with photographic sources on the Internet, I had the idea to show people by drawing them that how every day the existence of these plastics is for us and how we have exposed the sea, which is the source for the life of the earth, to destruction.
I drew plastic like a living sea creature. And I even ordered a canvas designed like a drop of water to attract more attention to water from different angles. The more I painted, the more I wondered what would happen if the whole sea was covered in plastic, and it made me think of etching with different materials.
But in the end, I will return to painting, but with the plan that plastic will become a wave of the sea and cover it all like clear, shiny, soft, and flexible water if we continue to use plastic in the same way.
