About Art Work

By analyzing the philosophy arising from the Iranian way of thinking, and demonstrating a good grasp of modern art, Hossein Kazemi has been able to create singular artworks that are admirable and mysterious. His paintings, including the present work, are enriched by philosophic symbolism. His work is an embodiment of a timeless time at the dawn of creation. It is an intelligent play of textured surfaces in white, different tones of which indicate the great command of the artist. Strong, bold blue lines over the square form could symbolize growth.

Kazemi’s abstract paintings are the most well-known, representative of his works at an international level. This makes this particular painting even more significant. Hossein Kazemi, who is a two-time winner of the gold medal of the First and Second Painting Biennial of Tehran, has created major, invaluable works during his lifetime that are kept in museums in Iran and abroad.
