Gohar Dashti is on display on our 2nd floor gallery until June. Featuring 16 images from Iran, Untitled 2013 and Stateless 2015, as well as the video, Slow Decay, Dashti’s Selected Works are set in Iran, but the ideas therein transcend geography. By exploring the influence of history in a manner more squarely focused on the aesthetic rather than the political, the images underscore human experience. In establishing this common denominator, the images serve as a potential gateway to a greater understanding of the impact of history on contemporary society and of Iranian culture.

He strives to create poetic images through the use of light.” #FMoPA #RoamFlorida #LoveFL #IgersTampa #IgersStPete #DowntownTampa #Instagram_Florida #IgersJax #UTampa #Art #PureFlorida #ClearGram
