Parastoo Ganjei
5 - 29 October

 

 

Of Persian heritage, like many of the rose varieties she paints, Ganjei beautifully captures the transitional moment of a flower reaching its fullest hour, amongst other roses and petals already passed. Together with loose, gestural landscapes in a controlled, minimal palette, this exhibition includes a rich variety of this artists latest work.

 

'White Roses in a Silver Jug', acrylic on canvas, 51 x 64cm

 

 

Parastoo Ganjei, comes from an artistic family, with a grandfather who was a prominent painter in Iran. She paints still lifes as well as landscapes, roses are a favourite subject for her and she captures the weight of the flower heads beautifully whilst keeping a strong sense of movement. Using this common subject as a vehicle to portray feelings and emotions, there is a vitality as well as balance to her work.

 

Parastoo Ganjei studied fine art in Iran and Sussex and is a graduate of Bournmouth University.

 

Exhibiting widely in the United Kingdom, her work has proved to be extremely collectable.
