Zahra Amiryeganeh


Born in 1981 in Rasht, Iran, Amiryeganeh is an artist who experiments with form and content.

In her current series, Tide and Mist, Amiryeganeh explores interior spaces, time and life. She says, “The presence of repeated elements in the paintings that appear in a transformed body, give the collection a non-linear narrative, without making the plot and rhythm lost and unclear.”

“Time has stopped. Time has died. In the vein of water and after the wind. There is no soul in the houses and behind the doors, but a single human drowning. Not struggling, not visible, not hidden either. He exists in the void, fades away, laying in the water as though it pushes him away and rejects his presence in its blue essence. One would imagine an entanglement of two voids. A division. A decomposition. The story of life is like a labyrinth in which humans are an ever-changing object. With an end unwritten in time and place. Engraved, flowing, like the flow of stone in water.” – Farzam Amin Salehi

Amiryeganeh studied painting at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad and Tehran University. Based in Tehran, Iran, Amiryeganeh has participated in numerous group shows and her solo exhibitions most recently include one at Choom Gallery (Bandar Anzali, Iran).
