Page Galleries presents Rising by artist Negin Dastgheib.

Dastgheib has always been interested in the concept of home. Earlier works focused on Dastgheib’s family memories of pre-revolution Iran and her own nostalgia for that time. A few years ago, the artist began to expand and explore the notion of ‘home’ through other memories of places and experiences. She found herself painting from nature – a space she says she feels most at ease, most comfortable in herself.

The works in Rising are imbued with a certain kind of intimacy; a somewhat disarming sense of sincerity that is rarely encountered. Her loosely rendered botanical forms linger at the edge of reality and abstraction through the artist’s remarkable sensitivity to composition, form, texture, and colour. Dastgheib works across a vibrant palette and the titles of works are equally dynamic – Sea CreaturesMandarin SkinsHot FlushMarshmallow BloomsPaisley Dreams – and draw a charming and playful juxtaposition between the botanical forms with often unexpected imagery.

The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures.
