Painter Erases Lies

Arte Gallery in Tehran is playing host to a solo painting exhibition on the subject of 'persona,' the concept of social face or mask introduced by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung (1875-1961).

Titled 'Persona-Lies,' the exhibition opened August 11 and will run through August 20. It features a collection of expressionist paintings by Mehrazin Rezai.

According to a review by Tiwall (, the expressionism in Rezai's works is in fact the lack of expression in the portrayed faces. The mute, lonely portraits stare blankly at visitors. They cannot convey a feeling. They cannot play roles. This is Rezai's way of removing the persona and neutralizing any means of deception.

Arte Gallery is located at No. 3, Second Alley, Golestan Street, Alikhani Blvd., Kurdistan Highway. Visiting hours are 4 to 8 pm.
