Calligraphic Paintings at Niavaran Cultural Center

‘My Many Unknowns,’ a solo exhibition of calligraphic paintings by modern painter Fatemeh Hassani will open Friday at Niavaran Cultural Center in Tehran.
The exhibition titled ‘Che Danamhaye Besyar’ in Persian at Gallery No 2 will run through February 11, from 10 am-8 pm, and on Fridays from 2-8 pm, ISNA reported.
It features 25 paintings in various dimensions made with a special technique  applying both acrylic and oil colors, and can pass for abstract artworks with a modern touch.
About the exhibition Hassani said, “Having lived with calligraphy for over two decades, I know how powerful the letters and words are. The art of calligraphy is rooted both in form and meaning, two congruous manifestations, of the visual art.”
Hassani expounded on the various capacities of the Nastaliq script, a cursive style with long horizontal strokes and short verticals, and is amongst the most fluid calligraphy styles. 
“Nastaliq can have amazing compositions and precise proportionalities. With proper distribution of soft and rigid, round and flat, heavenly ups and earthly downs, some master calligraphers can go beyond verbal messages and establish a deep emotional connection with the audience,” through their works.
Just as we listen to a song in a foreign tongue and enjoy it, without having a clue about the meaning of its lyrics, similarly calligraphy can “provoke a thought or message” in the viewer even without having specialized knowledge.
Niavaran Cultural Center is located at the northern end of Pasdaran Street, across Niavaran Park.
