Parvin Farzaneh Sculptures
Parvin Farzaneh has been a professional artist for over 35 years now. During her long career as a painter, Parvin has held numerous solo and group exhibitions, and upon moving to Montreal, Canada, she continued exhibiting her paintings. She also became increasingly interested in experimenting with other mediums and, in 1983, she received formal training in sculpture at the Saidye Bronfman Centre, in Montreal. She has since applied her creative and artistic talents to developing her own technique and style in this medium. The repertory of her works includes sculptures in bronze, marble, alabaster, and winterstone.

Artist's Statement:
Nature and its beauty have always been the main source of inspiration for me throughout my long career as an artist. In my paintings, I use my imagination and impression of familiar vistas or elements in nature to create my landscapes.As I became interested in the medium of sculpture, I began experimenting with different materials and have created sculptures in bronze, marble, alabaster, agate, and clay. I have also developed my own technique for large-scale sculptures using winterstone, and have given workshops using this material for outdoors sculptures. Creating outdoors sculptures is both challenging and rewarding as they are not only attractive for their scale, visibility, and accessibility, but that they can be vehicles for educating the public and awakening their sense of aesthetics.The themes and modeling of some my sculptures suggest the organic. In these, my figures seem to grow from the roots of trees and extend into branches. In others, rounded features and fluid lines present the human form in movement. My series of laughing figures reveal the delight I experience in creating as well as my desire to transmit the feeling of joy to viewers. Laughter and fluidity of movement animate my sculptures and breathe life into solid form.I enjoy experimenting with different techniques and mediums and the possibilities they present in the creative process. It is important for me to choose those subjects to which I can relate. Harmony of colors, form, and expression engender an aesthetic and meaningful whole in all of my artwork.
