Below critical note by Rossella Savarese

Marjan Fahimi of Iranian origins, in Tehran she graduated in Italian Literature, a culture that fascinated and seduced her, thus deciding to move and study in Rome where she obtained a second degree in Architecture and Urban Design.

Refined artist, in continuous research and experimentation, today he refines combinations of acrylic color with two-component resin, tracing a possible combination between abstract variations and figurative solutions. The training and the experience in the architectural sector generate an artistic making in which the two-dimensional meaning is overcome, focusing the discourse on the material plane, the artist feels she has to mold from the material the form, inherent and pre-existing, in an attitude of taking away proper to sculpture. As proof of this, the recently built installations.

Currently she works on the theme of the iris, a subject that simultaneously presents itself as a flower, a mirror or a hole-crack to look at and cross, a multifaceted aspect that most interests her. The experimentation and the deepening of the evocative potential of this subject were born on the occasion of his participation in the exhibition “Forma mentis – Aesthetics of touch” at the State Tactile Museum Homer of Ancona, where he communicates with the user as well as visually, through braille writing positioned in the iris. Over time the works have been remodeled and the initial experimentation gives way to remarkable results, in which he masters the technique by presenting balanced color combinations.

The Opera choice is “Green Iris“. Conceived in a suspended time, in which everyone experiences a readjustment to the new, Marjan Fahimi continues its creation without hesitation, elaborating unusual details and nuances. An eye on the world, a look in ourselves. Yet in front of the work one does not feel scrutinized, observed, investigated but rather conquered, hypnotized. The chromatic passages and shades bring us a sunny field of sunflowers. The circular, harmonious and spiritual form, a continuous line without a beginning or an end, elevates to heaven. Everything is in balance and, as often happens in her works, we can decide whether the slit in the center of the work should be crossed or contemplated.

Technique mixed on wood, diameter 100 cm. As anticipated, we are dealing with a combined technique of resin and acrylic color, most of the time the artist chooses, as a preliminary, to mark the wooden base made personally, with an iron wire and that in the subsequent drafting of the pictorial material generates unexpected results . Master the technique, delivering diverse results. From an in-depth analysis of her artistic production, we notice a diversity in the choice of the subject, in the balance between abstract and figurative art, in which what interests her is the constant dialogue with the user through a sensorial and experiential communication.
