Framed /With Frame: 56 x 45 cm Silk Screen, Hand-Printing, Ed.12/21 Artist Statement: In this collection, I portray Hafez alongside angels traveling between the two worlds; the works attempt to illustrate the sublimity of the transcendent world. The works’ colors, composition, and decorations are based on my intuitive understanding of his work, and the music embedded in the poetry influenced the movement, stillness, and silence of the works’ spaces. My interest in and enthusiasm for Hafez Poetry has inspired me since childhood, and this collection was shaped during four years of inner journey with the poet. It is impossible to illustrate all aspects of the voyage that the sonnets invoke through words; these paintings represent the Hafez of my imagination.
