Opening Reception Thursday May 12, 2011, 6-8pm
Showcase: May 12- June 11, 2011
Nature and poetry are the most important sources of inspiration in Paris’ art. In silence and solitude the words of wisdom in a line of poetry, guide and lead her to a deep appreciation of the beauty, harmony and unity that pervades life. The exhibition, Painted Literature, showcases paintings based on the poetry of two contemporary Persian master poets,Shafii Kahkani and Sohrab Sepehri. The visual narration and interpretation of these words
creates an aesthetic language of form and colour, conveying the paralleled great beauty,compassion and wisdom between the paintings and the poems.
