Farzaneh Rostami, originally from Tehran, Iran, lives and works in Ontario, Canada. She studied art in Tehran and Florence for many years. Her artwork focused on the history, mythology and environment in which she was raised. She has explored the medium of sculptures, drawings, paintings and installations.
In her work we see experiences and memories as an Iranian female artist. The artist’s works depict women, their suppression, trauma, movements and relationship with nature. Her culture inspired her collection named the “Renaissance in Persian Gardens.” She explores the differences between Persian miniature and Renaissance in her work. She presents us with the Venus Figure Sculptures series that are the symbol of beauty. She demonstrates how the meaning of beauty changed in the centuries. In her Land Art Series, Farzaneh presents our relationship with nature.
