The Persian mystic poet Rumi said, "Let the beauty we love be what we do. " In Shahla's work, the viewer will find beauty born of pain, and a resilient joy in the play of light and shadow, hue and coutour. Inspiring, emotional, yet bold and stripped of sentimentality, heart-felt and stunningly executed, these works light up the walls on which they hang. Being in the presence of Shahla's work, is to feel the direct connection of painter to painting, material, and model.
Enjoy Shahla's work, in the company of fine Santoor player Azimi on opening night June 3rd.
