Pariyoush Ganji is renowned for her work with textiles, which she teaches regularly in art school. This exhibition, however, presents her paintings, which employ different techniques hailing from Japanese and Persian traditions, creating intense and meticulous results. Her work is part of significant collections in Japan, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

This exhibition is on the theme of windows and showcases the Iranian artist’s, Pariyoush Ganji, fourth period. In the first, she concentrated on black and red, using traditional elements from Persian windows. In the second, “Roses through Windows,” she alternated between mauve and monochrome. The third, “Finding Light through Darkness,” included two distinct series: “Night Windows,” which were paintings made up of different layers of violet, and “Day Windows” that played with white on white.

Pariyoush Ganji explains her work: “I observe everything through windows. I look from the inside and the outside of a window, searching for light in darkness. Thus I am not on the inside nor the outside . I see myself through the window. I try to discover the silence that travels through the layers of shadow. At the deepest of each layer, I find an expanding calm. Sounds will disturb it. The space of silence is dynamic, it is airy, it breathes. It does not let itself be disturbed. It catches my movements and the silence becomes visual. Sounds might surround me. I do not hear them. My windows free up quietness from within me. This silence reveals the purity and profoundness of life.”
