Nasrin Shahpouri Azar born born in Tehran 1984 has BA in Sculptur and MA in illustration from Tehran Art University. She had many group exhibitins in Iran and this is her first solo exhibition.
As the artist says: ” If we consider illustration, as illuminating, clarifying, decorating, glorifying a concept, this illumination also needs interpretation. This might mean to enable seeing. We make a concept or a text that includes terms and mental meaning and make them tangible by shape and image which is a tangible and concrete matter.
That is why I was interested in illustration and years later this interest opened the gates of sculptor for me. Therefore my imagination and dreams developed more than my studies and imaging.
I tried to centralize the human and set human in the center of my attention and freely to enter my imagination, talk and gradually get away from my mind. Individuals, each one thinks differently in my works, sometimes teases and belittle life and sometimes remain in absolute seriousness. Human sometimes enters my works with an imaging way.
I try to utilize common materials and try to use empty spaces as an element of my works therefore by constant reduction and addition I achieve new forms that I present them sometimes as individual or in multi forms and I use empty spaces to express my thoughts better and realize my dreams and wishes in a way.”
