Skies of Red Poppies: New Art by Zoe Ghahremani
Join us as writer and artist Zoe Gharemani unveils her new paintings.
The paintings and watercolors in this exhibit stem from Ghahremani’s loving memories of her native Iran. In landscape paintings the artist skillfully captures the essence of her homeland and the beauty of its countryside. Images of nature, pomegranates and red poppies recur in Ghahremani’s artwork. The artist’s favorite flower, the red poppy, is captured in nature and also in still-life compositions decorating her other artistic tool, the typewriter. Whether it is on the canvas or the page the artist presents a lively image of her native country.
Zohreh Ghahremani did not receive any formal art training, but from a young age she was surrounded by a family of artists that instilled and nurtured her love for drawing, watercolors and painting. Ghahremani is the complete Renaissance woman who as a retired dentist now fulfills her life passion of creating art with the brush as well as the pen. Her award-winning novel, Sky of Red Poppies, is currently highlighted in 2011 One Book, One San Diego and you can learn more about her published work and view her artwork at www.zoeghahremani.com.
