The Witness

Kavi Gupta presents The Witness, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Arghavan Khosravi (b. 1984, Shahr-e-kord, Iran) this exhibition continues Khosravi’s investigation of the aesthetics of ancient Persian miniature painting as a vehicle for cultural transformation. Khosravi’s paintings dazzle the eye with their dreamlike color palettes and masterful draughtsmanship. Yet, their most formidable visual characteristic is their multi-dimensionality.  The images burst forth from the wall, their complex scaffolding of cut wooden panels offers a dramatic and constantly shifting perceptual experience to viewers.///

There are many hiding places in these painted realms, where danger lurks, and treasures await. If aspects of these images look familiar it is because each of Khosravi’s paintings references a specific Persian miniature painting from history; yet, their architectural presence makes clear that they are not homages, but are intended to subvert the tradition to which such images belong.
