Traveling Demons

Being inspired by her past memories, the artist creates and depicts pictures behind which profound meanings lie, making the viewer interpret them to the extent of his own understanding and perception.

She does not impose concepts on the observer, and this is what makes her work so admirable.

The Past Residues

The artist takes you to the ruins of her past memories where still one discovers certain residues from her life in Iran. All those signs revive in her mind while reflecting a strange sense, so beautifully and so artistically….

Maybe she wants to imply: “I know this old town quite well, but it seems this town does not know me any more.”
