I have been practicing Persian Miniature since 20 years
Initially destined to illustrate manuscripts, the miniatures were framed with one or several very thin golden border lines. The Persian painter started the frame before creating the composition, thus he opened a window to another world.
As a matter of fact, before anything else, Persian painting is the logic of forms and colors assembled in a specific order, the subject being only a pretext to show the artist’s mystical conception of world and nature through purity of form and color.
I love this way of immaterial representation of things and beings, without any shade or light.
Drawing…colors…gold and silver.
