Fish And Coral


Artwork explanation

This artwork, from Shahrivar Collection, consists of two distinct and contradictory parts. The unorganized urban and industrial spaces have shaped the margin of the artwork, which has surrounded the internal spheres and invaded from each side. The inner scope of the artwork, shows the living, dynamic and flowing world in the heart of the nature, which has been created with vivid colours and delicate details. This feature had led the core of the artwork to miniature and eastern painting and on the other hand, presents a contradiction and, of course, the interaction in an unbridled modern society. A margin, which, influences on the centre of the artwork, at the beginning, by dominating itself, gradually loses its influence. In fact, this happens, once the core of the artwork, and the colour spectrum in the artwork has expanded. The natural world and the flowing life, dominate the industrial and aggressor margin and passes through it.


Expert Opinion

“Bita Vakili’s artwork embodies a dialectic conversation between the mysteries of the self and outside world, in abstract images that look familiar at times. Her visual world is fluid, restless, and profoundly personal. It begins with a broad, vague entirety and ends up in marvellous, delicate details. Her distinctive works seem to be common lyrical abstractions at first sight, formed by fine outlines and undulating colour surfaces. Despite its tangible expressive language, Vakili’s artwork makes no attempt at employing strong impressive brushstrokes or emotional behaviour. Flavoured with rationalism, Vakili's works impress gently and implicitly, underlining the philosophy that particles constitute the entire universe. In fact, these delusive images connote both a world of particles and galaxies. It can be said that the main idea of her art is the similarity and symmetry of these microcosms and macrocosms. In both notions, the image she creates is a product of a downward look at the horizon, which is ultimately presented on a vertical plane. The view could be from near or from afar, mysteriously drifting between abstract and figurative painting. One can imagine that she is painting either the earth or a mere background; it can be either a large plane enclosed by a small rectangle or a tiny spot with a great concern. Thus, in addition to be a discovery in the world of particles and planes, Bita Vakili's painting is an experiment with textures and masses.”
