A Moment in Eternity
In this ongoing series of works that I embarked on in 2021, my central theme revolves around self-discovery and personal growth.
Women often find themselves conforming to societal standards of femininity and beauty, subtly imposed by cultures and media. My paintings serve as a portrayal of women who have chosen a different path, one of self-empowerment and self-determination. Within my art, women are depicted in their quintessential form – naked, with their hair flowing freely in a garden. They exude decisiveness and self-awareness, understanding that staying true to themselves demands effort. It's a challenging journey that can feel like an eternity, but it's one that is both painful and necessary.
The object held in the women's hands is a tool, its sharp blade repurposed into comb teeth, symbolizing their commitment to change and their ability to enact transformation through feminine energy.
Within the artwork, you'll find texts written in reverse, some in English and some in Persian, resembling mantra-like phrases. These texts serve as a reminder of the transformative power inherent in the process of self-discovery and the conscious choices we make as we evolve.
