For this edition of Asia Now, Bavan presents a group exhibition by gallery artists Navid Azimi Sajadi, Elham Etemadi, Parham Ghalamdar, Oldouz Nabizadeh, and Mahsa Tehrani.
Oldouz Nabizadeh presents Spontaneous Generation, a new series of ceramic sculptures. In the Spontaneous Generation, the artist has used the ceramic medium to sculpt unrecognizable forms with rough textures, matte colors, and some black stains. These pieces are fabricated with two different ceramic techniques and each piece has gone through three phases to reach its final form.
On this occasion, we are pleased to present a selection of paintings by Parham Ghalamdar. We also feature new paintings by Elham Etemadi and Mahsa Tehrani following their solo presentations at Bavan earlier this year.
Other new works include plates by Navid Azimi Sajadi from the Allegorical States series.
