One of Iran's promising young talents is Ahoo Hamedi. She was born in 1981 in Iran. Hamedi studied at the Azad University of Fine Arts, Tehran where she received her BA. Ahoo Hamedi's paintings are matured works of art that bear resemblance to sketches a painter would draw to start a major project. Her style is characterized by a striking lightness that reflects skill with watercolor, absence of background, lucid brushstrokes and clarity of the finished work. The completed and signed paintings she presents to the viewer are as though the painter has painted them for herself. Each painting could be a page of her diary; like the scattered thoughts we put on paper to somehow explore our identity: notes made with the intention of self-discovery. The search for one's self is an endeavor of not just this painter, but an entire generation that, like Ahoo Hamedi, feels lost in a society where a broad gap divides the existing reality and the publicized ideology. Hamedi has had solo and group exhibitions in such countries as Iran, UK, Canada, and Dubai. She is also a member of the Association of Iranian Painters. Ahoo Hamedi is presently living and working in Tehran.
Artist's Statement: I believe in the power of subconscious self, inner feelings and instinctive beauties that are within an artist. And I also believe that all these are reflected in an artist's art.
My thoughts materialize in my works whether I want it or not. First I create an
art work and then I think about it and discover, realize and sometime even
decode the inner meanings and possible symbolism that are painted in my works.
I haven't named any of my pieces because by doing so I impose my own interpretation on the viewer. The viewer must always remain free to decide what to see and what to interpret.
I depict women because I find in them the smooth shapes and lines I look for and I feel the same smoothness and freedom while I am working in ink.
