Painting on wood, 2016, 39"w x 38.5"h x 1"d

I am an Iranian-Canadian. My annual visits back to Iran consist of weekly road trips from Tehran (the busy capital) to Zanjan. This work utilizes found shapes from scrap metal pieces in a metal shop factory in Zanjan, Iran. This factory is surrounded by large mountains and greenery. This piece combines tertiary greens that evoke notions of nature and landscape with negative shapes, one of which contains a Farsi letter.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
