Arshin Agashteh’s paintings are the battlefield of forces from two contradictory worlds. Here, a linear and orderly world clashes with the unstable and amorphous world of canvas, resulting in a collision that is manifested in explosions, eruptions and chaos. This is an improvised explosion captured on the canvas in a moment.

These explosions trigger immediate and unpredictable results. It is the accident that holds sway over everything, aspiring to embody new forms and molds by disturbing the order of things. A simple story is relived repeatedly in this collection, each time with new details and a meticulous narrative. From this perspective, it recalls the ancient tradition of Persian painting.

The white background of the works on the one hand and the absence of human agency on the other hand portray a still and frozen world. The painting is frozen in a very short moment of time. The timing is accurate and precise to illustrate details vividly.

Explosions occur in silence, colorful and beautiful, like wild blossoms.

این خانه ی عموی من نیست که در آسمان پرواز می کند؟

نه، این یک شکوفه بهاری است.

این نمای خانه ی خیالی من نیست که فرو می ریزد و می پاشد و هر تکه اش به قاره ای پرتاب می شود؟

نه، این ها شکوفه های تابستانی هستند.

این ها همان خانه هایی نیستند که هر روز در سینمای خانگی می رقصند؟

نه، این ها شکوفه های پاییزی هستند.

پس نباید گریه کنم؟ پس می شود بشقاب شام را جلوی تلویزیون ببرم؟ پس قرارهای چای نوشیدنمان لغو نمی شود؟

نه، ببین شکوفه های زمستانی چقدر زیباست.

Isn`t this my uncle`s house that is flying in the sky?

No, it is a spring blossom.

Isn`t it the view of my dream house that is collapsing and scattering and each of its pieces are throwing to a continent?

No, these are summer blossoms.

Aren`t these the houses that are dancing on the home theater every day?

Shouldn`t I cry then? Is it possible to take my dinner dish in front of the TV? Aren`t our tea gatherings canceled then?

No, look how beautiful the winter blossoms are.
