The Name of This Tree…

October 11-November 11, 2012

The Name of this Tree, is Pari Azarm Motamedi’s second solo show at the Bellevue Gallery. We are excited and honoured to be showing her new body of work based on the poetry of contemporary Persian scholar and poet, Shafii Kadkani. His poems deal with questions and feeling which many contemporary Iranians share and Pari has attempted to convey them in a visual language. According to Pari, poetry and painting are about making ‘images’ to convey a message. In contexts where lack of freedom limits what can openly be expressed, the ‘image’ becomes the tool of a hidden language of communication between the artist and the ‘readers’ of the work.
