Parvaneh Torkamani Acrylic Painting "Mystical Calculations"
Parvaneh Torkamani (Iranian, 21st century)
Acrylic painting on canvas
Signed to the verso
Parvaneh Torkamani’s paintings come from the stream of consciousness and depict everyday situations. Each stroke of the brush is an impression of something. It could be the arch of someone’s eyebrow or the bend of their shoulder. A series of strokes create characters and the characters are in dialogue with each other.
Torkamani was born in Tehran, Iran, and after living in New York City, Los Angeles, Washington DC and Stuttgart, Germany she is now settled in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where she is the creator of the Resident Persian Project, a place of poetry, music and good Persian food.
