Painter and sketch artist Sara Alirezai has curated a group exhibition titled ‘Resolution,’ at Tehran’s Jorjani Art Gallery.

The exhibition will run through January 9 and features paintings that highlight the concept of image resolution or sharpness, Gallery Info ( reported.

Resolution refers to the number of pixels in an image. Pixels are minute area of illumination on a display screen, one of many from which an image is composed.

“The concept of image resolution is not limited to photography. In everyday life, people may leave behind vivid memories of themselves or ‘sharp’ as we may call it in photography,” the artist says.

Sometimes the memories are buried under “a foggy layer, a filter that is a result of tradition, culture, rules and norms or geographical demands.”

“Memories of the early years usually remain sharp for a few years after childhood. Then the images, occasions, thoughts, words and emotions are pushed to the subconscious mind, where they may gradually lose significance and sharpness,” Alirezai said in a statement on the exhibition.

Other painters who are participating are Salma Bigdeli, Bahareh Khorsand and Yasaman Abbasi.

The gallery is located at No. 4, Khayyam Alley, North of Parkway intersection, Valiasr Avenue, and visiting hours are from 4:30-8:30 pm.
