Painting an Escape


Painting an Escape

By Geoff Carter

The art of Iranian expatriates Nanda Sharifpour and Ali Fathollahi is being shown through the end of February at Blackbird Studios. It’s some beautiful work, otherworldly and achingly poetic. Some of the pieces are explicitly about the oppression Sharifpour and Fathollahi faced in their former home, while other paintings hardly seem connected to earthly matters at all. They’re just pure dreamscapes, co-inhabited by people and goldfish. Yes, goldfish.
