Rainbow in Private Quarter
The paintings adapted from Qajar paintings as if some parts of them have been opened towards another world and achieved a dreamful aspect. Pegah Lari carefully recreated the still life in Qajar era and decoration of spaces in paintings, with her paintings and presents them in the current world. In such paintings the internal space is suddenly changed by use of various colors and then a doll or statute may be appeared. These dynamic, visibility and invisibility have contradictions with traditional and custom paintings in which everything is static. We observe a scope in which some people are changing and collapsing but such a change is made happily and everything has a dreamful shine.
In other paintings dolls as if carry artifice of statutes in Qajar paintings are considered as indicators and decorations surrounded them in role of masses around them. The painter tries to connect various worlds. The lifeless nature, sense, statute, face, present and future, reality and unreality, … and among such contradictions and companionships, we will achieve happiness arising from observing paintings which is more worthy than a simple adaption.
