Mohsen Karami was born in 1985 in Amol. He is a doctoral student of Islamic arts at Tarbiat Modares University and has been teaching art courses in various universities and institutions for 10 years. Most of his studies and work are based on the philosophy and comparative art of Iran, India and the Far East. In the field of Iranian studies, he has conducted researches in the field of Mitraism and Suhrawardi's philosophy, and in methodology, he has phenomenological and hermeneutic trends, based on this focus, he examines the aesthetics of Iranian art. His works with unique improvisations were held as his eighth solo exhibition on June 9, 2023 in Mojdeh Art Gallery.
The upcoming artworks are the result of a meeting. It is a meeting and a conversation that took place between the cultural borders of Iran and the Far East and in metahistory. A place where, according to Suhraward: "There is no way to point your index finger that way!" Perhaps, it is to know "yourself" and in another mirror! The experience is another kind of time that is unstable and transitory. It is the experience of emptiness and nothingness, where colors and arrays are removed to see what remains?
What remains will undoubtedly last. Improvisions are characters who appeared in an “instant" and a "second" themselves and escaped from the mystery of "nothing". These works are a return to the foundation of colors and not to them. Returning to black and white and seeing the infinity of colors in the shades of black and white. Indeed, it is the truest way to see color! Decolorization is the same as seeing color, in the absence of black and white, and that is the true insight.
This collection is for viewing and not reading! Because, reading is to forget, but seeing is illumination and intuition! These works are the path... they are pictorial instructions!
