#WERKSTOFF Mojé Assefjah

›Each painting is to me a vision, a scene, a view. My interest for the Italian Renaissance, be it technical and theoretical, is infused with the mystical beauty of the visual productions of Ancient Persia. The free gesture inscribes itself through wide ribbons that vary between dark and light colours. The flexibility of the movements and the strokes calls to mind Persian calligraphy. The spectator might sometimes see vegetal, floral, plant forms, which are quite visible in bold floral pattern of early carpet design and other times might see baroque drapery. The spaces are built by the dialectic between opacity and transparency, closeness and distance, putting layers over layers to construct the depth. I would like to tell stories of dreamed landscapes between abstraction and figuration.‹ – Mojé Assefjah
