Mehdi Sarookhani displays paintings by integration of characters from Qajar era in today’s atmosphere at the CAMA Gallery
According to the Ilna, the Lost in Time exhibition featuring 13 works of Mehdi Sarookhani, a graphic and painting artist will be showcased from Friday, July 12 to 17 at the CAMA Gallery.
Mehdi Sarookhani created the painting works of the Lost in Time collection by using mixed media technique in the years 2014 to 2016.
Sarookhani said about the Lost in Time collection: “One of my mental concerns has always been the existence of different individuals and characters out of their time and place, that what other people might experience with their particular thoughts, clothing, behaviour and speech, and what routines they would do. This concern caused the creation of this collection. People in the Qajar era were the reason for creating the present works and image integration of these characters in today’s atmosphere outside of their time and place and in the midst of a glamorous and troubling world. Perhaps they, as well as us, were captured by time and place that they did not get to choose. While today’s world could also experience other individuals. Those who were lost in history while could be remembered by the technology of today’s world”.
The Lost in Time painting exhibition will be showcased from July 12 to 17th at the CAMA Gallery. Enthusiasts can visit this display at the CAMA gallery, N0.44, 10th Golestan, Pasdaran Street.
