Masi Creates Visions of Freedom

As she blurs the divide between inner and outer realities, the Iranian artist Masoome Moradkhani known as Masi distills a darkly atmospheric and dreamlike vision of a life without borders. Within Masi’s surreal and abstracted landscapes of the soul linger the influences of Persian Mysticism and architecture, infusing these metaphysical paintings of forms and tones with a passionate emotional depth and elemental rhythm. The artist builds her compositions in acrylic paints because of the medium’s speed and flexibility, which allows her to express a sense of spontaneity as she immerses herself in the moment of their creation. The impulsiveness of Masi’s painting process speaks of an inner longing for freedom as her canvases reach outwards into the world.

Born in a suburb of Tehran, Masi found refuge in painting and drawing from an early age, later studying art academically in a private institute and at university. A member of the Association of Iranian Painters since 2006, Masi has developed an impressive career as a professional artist in recent years, exhibiting widely in group and solo shows.
