Firoozeh Neman is a visual artist with Persian origins and strong roots in the land’s mystic poetry and ancient mythology. Having experienced a variety of cultural settings, she is now based in Ojai, CA .Her intricate and reflective drawings and sculptures are meditations on her relationship with the divine force of life. Her philosophy around this force echoes in her work and flows through, allowing each piece to dictate the details of its own story. Firoozeh’s joy is in the anticipation of what will be revealed. While her sculptures are serene, poised and assured, the edges of anarchy are bound to come through.
b. Tehran, Iran Lives and works in Los Angeles, CA
“The drunken realm of Hefez and Rumi’s poetry opened a whole new world to me. A world where my sketches come to life. Image within image, message within message. One sees layers upon layers of illusion come to the surface of one’s consciousness and then leave, just like life itself.” - Firoozeh Neman
