Inspired as much by music and poetry, as her own private fantasies, Sara’s work allows us to escape reality in a spiral of the cycles of life and death, of animals, dragons, daring escapes and evil flowers. An imaginative world of restless tension between life and death, good and evil, is permeated with the presence of bizarre and mythic figures. Water makes up 60% of our body mass, covers 96.5% of the earth’s surface and is a primary subject of Sara’s work. She is interested in the way water has been represented in art across history and the variant realistic, symbolic and stylised forms it takes. Inspired by views of tranquil waters, lakes, slow-moving rivers, and calm seas, she paints water in motion. The viewer enters flowing streams, turbulent oceans and waterfalls, represented in kaleidoscopic colour and through the presence of spiritual deities such as Ganesh.
Sara completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at University of Tehran and moved to Milan in 2011 to begin her Master of Visual Arts at the Academy of Fine Art of Brera. Since graduating in 2014 she has lived and worked in Milan. Sara is also a guitarist, playing blues inspired by Indian and Persian music.
My art is… spontaneous, emotional, vibrant
