About the work
Image rights
Iranian artist Sayeh ‘Saya’ Behnam works combine two rich artistic heritages; of eastern painting traditions and western artistic philosophies. Behnam’s use of Farsi, a traditional mode predominantly reserved for religious scripture most often by men, explores the potential of calligraphy as an art form, reinterpreting it through the eyes and hands of a female painter. Stretching across the paper or canvas, immersed in the harmony and balance of the curves, Behnam accentuates Farsi script’s tendency towards natural forms combined with the application of these organic materials.
