Persian Bloom - 20" X 16"
"Persian Bloom" is a stylized Persian motif found in rugs and artwork that dates back hundreds of years and appears in a variety of styles and motions. Next time you see a Persian rug, try to see if you can identify this style and motif (depends on the region of the Persian artwork). In this depiction, the movement is poetic in its form and in entering and leaving the scope of the canvas, letting us see for a moment a gentle almost caressing action as it lingers on the surface of the deep and heavy black background. This piece celebrates Northern regions of Iranian art and form that exudes a certain simplicity, elegance and sophistication.
