is one of the deepest humanbiological expressions...
I always carry within me the colours and forms of my ancestors.Then,
inspired by the Northern light and silence,I added new hues
to my palette. Living among colour and working with it, links
me with all the cultures throughout time.
Zarré has worked for many years with glass and mirror
mosaics,everything from 'normal picture size' to fully monumental
embellishments of public and private buildings. From a standpoint
of my own meditations on mosaics in the Italian tradition,
Teymor and I met in conversations on pictures which it felt
natural that we should continue.I gradually came to understand
that Teymor's pictorial world represents a vast spectrum,
in the best sense of the word, as well as the fact that
he is one of the world's artists as opposed to an artist
in some limite part of it.The paintings now on show contain
a sensualism without compromise.A meeting in the heat and
dreams of two-someness, portrayed with an honesty far from
banality and our everyday routine version of romance. In
spite of the emotionally charged content of the pictures,
theirpictorial solutions are extremely well composed throughout,
both in regard to colour and to form. They do not give the
impression of intellectual consciousness. It is more like
when people talk together about life and our role in it.
Teymor quotes a teacher he had as a child--'one must feel,
and enjoy'. Teymor feels, he feels in a totallyconcentrated
manner and well.
