Exhibition : Looking back


Flying Wings

Esfahan is one of the One Thousand and One Nights cities. History flows in its blue sky and forever vivid river. The art of esfahanies is mixing yesterday by today under the blue sky. In the several decades, alongside the Ochre and azure and the bluish of the mosques in naghshe- Jahan Square and greenness of the trees on Chahar-Bagh, the works of art can be seen, Tayaraan statue along the river, cubes and volumes in Hasht-Behesht, National Iranian poet Ferdowsi statue who looks thoughtfully at Toos, Shaykh Bahaii, Shaykh Saduq and Mulla Sadra, all of them are the new move in this living museum which connects yesterday to this day
Morteza Nematolahi is an Esfahanian sculptor and painter, one of those One Thousand and One Nights Esfahanies with his Statues, one of those nights connects you to old Esfahan, floating in the dancing lights, living along lines and curves of the East miniature, narrow streams, visiting the crescents of the school and the reflection of the moon on water. Familiarity with wood and plaster, iron and steel and memories of the artist have made him a famous sculpture and a spiritual painter. Vaporous Esfahan, lost in the winter days along Zayande-Rood, childhood meandrous alleys, narrow wooden bridges, reeds by the river have brought Nematolahi to the land of new creations where particles of light, wood, plaster and the steel of memories put the picture of Chahar-Bagh school vaults curvature beneath the long moon shivering on waters of the narrow streams in flying and wings for fly
