Fereydoun Ave

The Sacred Elements: Wind

London02 Sep – 07 Oct 2010
BACK
  • The gallery’s first solo exhibition by noted Iranian artist Fereydoun Ave presents paintings on canvas and paper that serve as meditations on the nature of wind.

    The “sacred elements” of the title (earth, fire, wind, water) are often tied in the west to ancient Greek philosophy and mythology. Indeed, Fereydoun Ave, a pioneer of the Iranian contemporary art scene, has in recent years spent much of his time on an island in Greece where the wind is a constant companion. For the artist, the wind is the least tangible of the elements and perhaps the one most difficult to render – though constantly felt, it leaves a fleeting trace of its presence.
