SARAI Gallery (SARADIPOUR) is pleased to present Titanium White, young Iranian artist Sadaf Seyed Rezaei‘s first solo exhibition. Titanium White opens on April 14 and it will continue to run until April 28, 2023, at SARAI Gallery.
Dealing with the notions of hope and contemporary humanity’s general sense of loss and alienation, Titanium White is a series of striking black-and-white works on canvas and paper where Sadaf Seyed Rezaei (b. 1996) presents us with a nearly lightless universe of unknown colors: a dark, twisting cubic architecture of volumes resembling walls, stairs, and pathways that are only perceptible through narrow rays of light refracted from various surfaces. The resultant spaces are geometric, part-abstract, and part-real. By continuing to paint her spaces all the way onto the four sides of her canvases, Seyed Rezaei activates the entirety of a framed canvas, further playing with notions of flatness versus depth and dimension. Her creations are, thus, turned into objects that could be simultaneously perceived as a painting and a sculpture. One of Khor Art Initiative 2022’s artists, Sadaf Seyed Rezaei’s work has also received praise from other art festivals including The 2nd Sateen Annual Visual Arts and the 12th annual Montakhab-Nasl-e No in 2021.
