Lot description
"I begin each piece with a sound; it can be the sound of a leaf drooping. Each work needs its own logic and guidelines and has to be unique and be ruled by its own laws. I know a work is complete when its life begins at which point I prefer to hide my intentions and allow viewers to come up with their own conclusions, to end this process also with a sounds, the sound of questions."-Pooya Aryanpour

"Cutting Objects" (2009) is a major, large-scale abstract painting by internationally acclaimed Contemporary Iranian artist Pooya Aryanpour (Iran, b. 1972). Pooya's oeuvre is characterised by the use of ethereal white shapes that conceptually represent symbolic calligraphy, that are set floating against saturated ombred, monochromatic backgrounds in rich tones of maroon, purple, reds and black. This is one of the artist's most accomplished and sublime paintings from his acclaimed 2009 "Cutting Objects" Series of abstract paintings. This painting measures 78.75 x 63 inches (200 x 160 cm) and is in excellent condition.
