Art on show in Brighton and Hove & East and West Sussex
Legendary Brighton-based artist Darvish Fakhr has been working in Iran, and is showing the resulting paintings in his first solo show in London, at EOA (Edge of Arabia) Gallery from 4 September to 8 November 2014.
“Over the last three years Fakhr has produced an extraordinary collection of multi-layered, ruminative pieces in response to his recent trips to Iran. In a body of work including paintings, installation and the eponymous digital collage ‘Palimpsest’ (2014), Fakhr explores the relationship between shared memory and the passage of time, looking both to the past and the future. The historical patination implied by the artist’s chosen ground of Iranian public walls – sun-bleached, free-form noticeboards ordered only by time – is set off by the contemporary thread running through this collection.”
