Thousands of Robinia were nothing compared to your eyes

AhmadReza Ahmadi - solo exhibition (27 April - 08 May)

Statement

Painting with water colours was neither funny nor a joy. They were done in the days that my soul was completely destroyed. The days of constant depression, when the earth fled from underneath my feet, and the roof of the sky was so low that I was suffocated. Initially, I started with fear. My friend, Abolfazl Hamati Ahouei, tried to solace me and he was taking me to his studio. His young students, with their lively faces, encouraged me to paint. The fear of painting, reminded me of my first book "Tarh" that Massoud Kimayee helped me to remember myself. On Wednesdays, I used to go to my friend’s atelier (Hemati) and he was always watching the water colours with patience. On those days which I had forgotten myself, my life had been transparent and clear but I knew the time of demise was near. As I knew the battery that was in my heart is my compass, so the water colours were born by my friend’s support, and my days slowly became pleasant. Considering these colours as a reflection of those days, which my soul and body were destroyed. Whatever strong reason you give for life to be continued, the death is blind and death but the lover’s footprints are lasting in the snow and will not melt away. Ahmadreza Ahmadi Spring 2018 Tehran
