Paintings by Hamid Zavareei
"My paintings are visual reflections on the dynamic tension between earthly and celestial experience."
Painting visionary experiences of duality and paradox, Hamid Zavareei focuses on light, poetry and the ethereal in his luminous and meditative images.
Zavareei combines modern and historic techniques in his compositions as well as in his imagery, which often suggests art historical figures. He begins by texturing the canvas with mastic or paint and then applies heavy layers of oil. Translucent glazes - often mixed with varnishes used by 16th-century masters - finish the paintings.
