Lives and works in Ojai, California
Recently featured in Vogue UK, Ojai-based artist Firoozeh Neman's practice encompasses sculpture, drawing, and painting. Neman lets the energy of the work guide her as she creates. Neman's most recent series investigate how sculptural forms can hold both masculine and feminine energies.
“Pronounced forms that highlight both feminine and masculine physical attributes, Neman's sculptures invite you to discover their spirit.”
“They all start with a clump of clay. It boggles my mind how each develops into a character unique to itself. Sometimes as I’m wrapping up a piece, doing the last touch ups, a name pops up into my mind. I‘d like to think that they are introducing themselves to me.” - Firoozeh Neman
About Firoozeh Neman
Firoozeh Neman is a visual artist, whose life journey has settled her in the serene foothills of Ojai California. Now in her mature years, she sees her work as a reflection of her life philosophy. Of Persian origins, Firoozeh has strong roots in the land’s mystic poetry and ancient mythology. Allow, flow and embrace it all with love, is the underlying message. Her intricate and reflective drawings and sculptures are meditations on her relationship to that life philosophy. It is that force which 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.
