Duet Painting Exhibition
Artist: Raha Sharafi & Atefe Mohammadpoor
Many ancient beliefs are of this idea that the Earth is formed from four main elements
Water, air, fire and soil
Each of us touches, understands, or picks these elements with our own perceptions.
Ancient Greeks believed that the combination of these elements forms a new entity It seems that the birth, production, and construction have taken place out of a few basic elements.
Avicenna, in “The Law”, states that two heavy elements form the human body, and two lighter elements, the air and the fire, form its soul.
In this exhibition, the impression of these elements has been more personalized and a different picture of each, in one style but in two different ways, has been traced and the fifth element has been added to it.
The fifth element for the two of us is space; space can be the intervals between humans, or it can be enormous and eternal, like the galaxy ,Space encompasses all, as much as the mother's womb.
It gives us the opportunity to breathe as much as it abandons us in a dense, infinite area.
Colors are blended promiscuously and then shaped so that each one of these five elements would make even the least communication with the audience, and for an instance, in two different ways, bring us back to our principle.
