"The Year You Were Born" is an oil on paper work executed by Tezh Modaressi in 2007. Capturing the worn in feeling of a familiar interior, the artist's soft brushstrokes and strong palette combine to create a scene that is at once domestically comfortable and intrinsically private.

In her soft dreamlike interiors, Tezh Modaressi captures the spirit of a lived-in space. Her attention to lighting and unique placement of furniture focuses the viewers gaze on her technique, while her use of traditional oil painting builds layers upon layers of glazes to create the softest edges. Since graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, Modaressi has had numerous exhibitions and is a member of the National Association of Women in the Arts. She is represented by the Chase Young Gallery (Boston, MA).
