Hamze Farhadi realism in paintings & sculpture explores a dreamlike world.
Hamze Farhadi Born in 1982. Painter – Sculptor -Architect. Azad University of Tehran – Faculty of Arts and Architecture.
In the “word” paintings Hamze expressing immediate emotions deliberately to convey them. Certain words have universal and visceral connotations and he compelled to put them in sculptures form or on canvas.
There is also a time-based quality to the physicality found in his work. Each piece is created over several months, using layers of polymer mediums between layers of mark-making.
By working across multiple pieces at one time, documenting and recording experiences, memory and emotional responses to the subject means that what lies beneath is sometimes subdued or intentionally hidden. Hamze compelled by what might be revealed and obscured by this approach. These compilations, with imagery and text sometimes masked, develop over time. Marks made today require a response to the mark of yesterday.
He said: “During these years of working with the issue of oil, I have always faced terrible realities, and whenever I have split these realities, I have had to hit the wall of history. This time, I tried to approach this issue with a different gesture; Gestures originate from the layers of each of us. It means whether they are 100% intentional or completely accidental! Finding the signs of gesture and behavior as factors of cognition is not a new thing.
In visual art, we approach the epistemological meaning of what is desired through gesture patterns; I also tried to say something about the semantic relations between oil, identity, hegemony and power by making these few pieces.
When the works were made, I realized that finding these relationships with my mental subject was not so obvious, nor was it hidden.
Still, I can’t hide my eagerness to show off all this hiddenness”
