Past Exhibition / Golnaz Fathi
June 30 - July 15, 2005
Trained as a calligrapher, Golnaz Fathi's paintings seem to break all the rules of traditional Persian calligraphy. Her letters are used merely as forms, her verse as her composition. One recognizes that there is script in her work, but her paintings carry meaning that has no known coded alphabet.
The strength of her work stems from the drive to express emotions that cannot be pinned down into words. Fathi's works succeeds where language fails, all things considered, there is solace to be found.
