Statement

Zahra Nazari was born and raised in Iran and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of Art & Architecture, Tabriz, Iran. She moved to the United States in 2011 to pursue her master studies in fine arts and establish her career as an artist. She received her MFA in Painting/Drawing at State University of New York, New Paltz, NY. 

While residing in Iran, Nazari was highly influenced by her visits to the ruins of ancient historical sites. Nazari’s move to America brought about a series of paintings that contain metaphors for the unsettled sensations formed when living in a dissimilar culture. These paintings merge her feelings for ancient and modern architectural forms with floating, collapsing and shifting environments. The results are fictitious structures situated within imaginary landscapes.

Nazari’s work is in several private collections, and her works have been exhibited internationally in both Iran & Italy. In 2012 her work was shown at the Illinois Institute of Art, Woman Made Gallery and Zhou B Art center all in Chicago, IL, Clifton Cultural Arts Center and Manifest Gallery both in Cincinnati, OH and the Wieden+Kennedy Gallery, Portland, OR. In 2013 and 2014 she exhibited at the Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco, CA, Masur Museum of Art, Monroe, LA, Sideshow Gallery, Brooklyn, NY, Kingston Museum of Contemporary Art, Kingston, NY, the Painting Center and SUNY Global Center both in New York, NY, Dorsky Museum of Art, New Paltz, NY, Hartnett Gallery, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY, Aljira, A Center for Contemporary Art, Newark, NJ and at the Shainberg Gallery, Memphis, TN. Her next solo exhibit is scheduled for The Museum of Los Gatos, Los Gatos, CA, in 2015.
