On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Dorothy Circus Gallery is proud to present the first UK solo exhibition the renowned Teheran-based, Iranian artist, Afarin Sajedi. Sajedi’s exhibition, titled ECCE MULIER, takes inspiration from the psychoanalytic analysis of the feminine depths observed first by Goethe and then by Jung, and acknowledged as the source of the creative power of the unconscious.

Sajedi is an artist who received classical pictorial training and whose expressive path is intertwined with magical symbolism and with the most contemporary influences of American Pop Surrealism and Asian Neo-pop. Sajedi powerfully and courageously synthesises the thoughts of postmodern women with female emotional patterns that relate to multiple experiences and existential conditions. The result is a rich psychological portrait that explores the inner spiritual nature and coexistence of love and strength in the maternal myth.

In a bold duel of light and shadows, Sajedi explores the dreams, solitudes, battles and goals of the universal woman. The large canvases of the artist convey a message rich in alchemical, religious and literary symbols. She inventively overcomes any temporal or cultural barriers while shedding more light and offering further understanding of the contemporary Woman.

Afarin Sajedi was born in 1979 in Shiraz, Iran. She studied at the Azad University of Tehran where she received her degree in Graphic Design, and currently lives and works in Tehran. During her childhood, Sajedi demonstrated a great interest and talent in drawing and through her family was introduced to the Italian Renaissance at an early age, which has deeply influenced her style in later life, most notably in her realistic portraits of ‘gentlewomen’ resembling Renaissance female depictions. She is also highly influenced by Heinrich Böll’s, The Clown, and by Gustav Klimt. Her creativity, technique, and strength of character have also ensured her a prominent position in the Iranian art world form the very start of her career.
