Me and Madam Iran: Solo Exhibition of Maryam Amini

September 23 - November 27 2010 at
Verso Artecontemporanea, Turin, Italy

Verso Artecontemporanea's new exhibiting season opens with Me and Madam Iran, a solo show featuring the works of Iranian artist Maryam Amini.

Two series of works are due to be displayed - the set of big format canvases (2010), Maryam Amini extremely fragile, Please handle with care and the collection of works on cardboard after which the exhibition is named, Me and Madam Iran (2009).

Mixed media on Canvas. 170x230 cm.

The title of the most recent collection - purposely autobiographical - refers to the indications usually placed on parcels containing fragile objects; namely, personal belongings intimately meaningful for the artist.

Me and Madam Iran is the artist's pun on the double meaning of the word Iran. It refers to both the nation and a female protagonist thus named.

In both sets of works the artist's expression is free, both technically and in terms of subjects represented. Painting is combined with collage and ready-made; objects of daily use share room with imaginary and abstract shapes.

Facing Maryam Amini's works, the viewer is overwhelmed by a feeling of exaltation and ferment, carried into a journey among discordant elements in a vortex of colours, winding lines, wrapping shapes and compositions scattered on the white background of the canvas.

The painting of the Iranian artist is conceived from the mind of a free spirit rather than conceptual issues and this is clear at first sight. The action and creativity of painting cover a key role in the search of new combinations and solutions that surprise the viewer and especially the artist herself.

Maryam Amini's paintings show introspection as well as hints to the outside world, the city and the daily routine. Such range of references opens up to a spectrum of further hints, stimulating the viewers towards their own free interpretation.

The observation of her pictures leads to the intuition of how most of Maryam Amini's effort and action aim to the achievement of a narration free of obstacles towards the horizons of the mind.
