Past Exhibition / Farhad Moshiri
January 25 – February 16, 2006
Comprised mainly of Moshiri's jar series, the paintings in this exhibition have a sculptural quality to them. Their massive presence does not overshadow their sentimental fragility: both in terms of content and treatment.
Often incorporating calligraphic renditions of contemporary Farsi love songs, Moshiri's crackled archeological findings subtly toy with orientalist expectations, and speak to us in an elegantly subversive tone that we can only pensively marvel at.
