MAHMOOD SABZI – “My artistic inspiration, the very basis of form and color for my work, comes from my childhood memories of Persian rugs designed and weaved by my mother. As I watched her for hours creating gorgeous patterns, hues and textures, her fingers dancing across the loom, the designs and shapes of my current work took form. My creations flow from the same source of energy and creativity that inspired my mother.” — Sabzi
Sabzi’s subjects are almost always women, beautiful, graceful, taciturn and lugubrious, they reflect solitude. His women are madonnas, modern goddesses, and martyred saints whose elongated forms suggest instability and internal conflict. Their anonymous faces transform them into religious icons that transcend and defy the demands of reality. Yet, other paintings reflect warmth, charm, gayety, happiness, and his undisputed love and admiration for women.
Sabzi’s paintings resonate both Eastern and Western philosophies. His rich Persian heritage provides him with ancient images and sentimental Persian themes and memories of innocence. The Western source of influences comes from one of the most creative moments of modernism of Cezanne and Matisse.
