I am an Iranian artist, born and raised in Tehran. I graduate at London Metropolitan university in fine art .Having been brought up in an unjust society, created for the men of our country has caused me to find beauty and harmony in places that are none. I think my inspirations stem directly from the struggle that us Iranian women have had to face in the past four decades. We have been shut in the small boxes of little men, forced to conform to the patriarchy’s rules of what is considered acceptable and what is not. When I first started sculpting, I started creating terracotta figurines with the undulating curves of the female torso. I tried to show the female anatomy in all of its splendor, going as far as deforming them and emphasizing on their plumpness. I made them as candlesticks, carrying the light of life as I saw it and the candle tears that pile up representing the struggles of life that make her stronger in her determination. Rebelling against the norms of beauty and not conforming to standards was my way of showing all facets of a woman’s strength, and the light that she carries.
My father has a saying, “A woman is the candlelight and light of the house, and may no house be devoid of it”.
