The last bird in a rainy twilight

Mahin Tiani Khiabani's avatar Mahin Tiani Khiabani

My artwork is not a copied manifestation of nature as there is not any nature around me at all. I have always been looking for a way to attract the observers’ attention to this matter and create an artwork so as to reflect the importance of existence for existence. My sky is a space of galaxies so I guide the movement of brush and color in a way that they can represent the emergence and expansion of the initial forms of existence and make the mind tangled in a series of seemingly irregular and confusing movements to discover a relative order. This also expresses the same order of being. And of course I used the rain as a significant component to show the water cycle as water exchange between the earth and the sky creates an inseparable link between them which seems splendid by itself. By conscious states and clever use of lucid and transparent colors, I formed hope and life. The last flying of the bird (of its own race) in a rainy morning is a warning for 21st-century thoughtful man.
