Persian Idea Art Gallery in Tehran is showcasing a series of psychoanalytical paintings created by Fariba Rajabpour, 34, winner of the second place at the 2011 Fajr Visual Arts Festival.

The exhibition titled ‘Sometimes Hidden, Sometimes Obvious,’ opened January 13 and will run through January 18 from 5-8 pm, Young Journalists Club (YJC) reported.

Rajabpour organized the exhibition to highlight psychological problems based on fear, with the aim to overcome the unpleasant feeling.

In her paintings, the artist has also portrayed mental conflicts in humans and how to live with them.

“In the midst of the throng, the feelings and fear of loneliness embrace today’s humans, sometimes in a hidden form and sometimes in an obvious manner,” says an introduction to the exhibit.

“It would be of some interest if we can sometimes expose ourselves to conflicts, caprice and fantasy, just for a test. The hidden jewel of the inner self may thus sparkle from behind the murky colors of routine life.”

The gallery is located at No. 28, Allahverdi Azar Alley, Kolahdouz Street.
