Lullaby for Tehran


Artwork explanation

Iran is the motherland and Tehran is the heart of our country. Azadi Tower somehow can be considered as its symbol. The heart of our land is great and kind, tumultuous and tired. This patient city, suffers from the thousand years history of this restless land. Tehran, the city that I love, is tired. Sometimes, I think my city wants a mother, a mother who takes her in a hug without concern, cares and has her lullabied. Perhaps a relaxed and soft moment in her mother’s arm calms her down. Lullaby for Tehran, shows my concerns for the city I love.


Expert Opinion

“Bita Vakili’s artwork embodies a dialectic conversation between the mysteries of the self and outside world, in abstract images that look familiar at times. Her visual world is fluid, restless, and profoundly personal. It begins with a broad, vague entirety and ends up in marvellous, delicate details. Her distinctive works seem to be common lyrical abstractions at first sight, formed by fine outlines and undulating colour surfaces. Despite its tangible expressive language, Vakili’s artwork makes no attempt at employing strong impressive brushstrokes or emotional behaviour. Flavoured with rationalism, Vakili's works impress gently and implicitly, underlining the philosophy that particles constitute the entire universe. In fact, these delusive images connote both a world of particles and galaxies. It can be said that the main idea of her art is the similarity and symmetry of these microcosms and macrocosms. In both notions, the image she creates is a product of a downward look at the horizon, which is ultimately presented on a vertical plane. The view could be from near or from afar, mysteriously drifting between abstract and figurative painting. One can imagine that she is painting either the earth or a mere background; it can be either a large plane enclosed by a small rectangle or a tiny spot with a great concern. Thus, in addition to be a discovery in the world of particles and planes, Bita Vakili's painting is an experiment with textures and masses.”
