History and memory are interlinked in the work of Persian-born artist Firouz FarmanFarmaian, whose lifetime of living in exile in Paris, France profoundly influenced both his creative practice and individual character. Rooted in Persian lore, and focused on themes of nature, architectonics and the interplay between realism and abstraction, FarmanFarmaian's diverse body of work is united by common motifs of movement and texture.
Farman Farmaian Lives and works in between Marbella and Marrakech.
The natural world has from the origins been central to his approach of artistic practice. He has developed a meditative/contemplative relation to the elements, that he has later sought to translate with paint, sculpture or installations. Nature has always been his true experimental space.
The “Naturescape” project was created in 2015 after the artist spent the summer in his wife’s Finnish cabin. The dense glacier-era geology, the richness of the underwoods, the radiant luminescence of Nordic skies all came together to incite a new creative dynamic. The project grew to present itself as a multi-platform experiment comprising many parts: Blueberry Sequence I and II, Jardin D’ete, Black Study and Fallscapes.
Blueberry Sequence I was featured in Firouz’s exhibition “Naturescape” at Syra Arts in 2018.
The Blueberry Sequence II works are currently available at Syra Arts. Please contact us for more information.
