Nane Hassan (Monavar Ramezani) : Self-taught Painter from Iran
Monavar Ramezani, well-known as Nane Hasan, born in 1937,in Sohravard، living in Khoda Bande town (Gheidar) in Zanjan Province, is an Iranian self-taught painter who has been involved in the art of weaving rugs and drawing rug patterns from her childhood until the age of 70. Recently, from 4 years ago, she started painting.
Her life is full of experiences and learning, which she has inherited from her forefathers, including tales, myths, stories, poems, traditions, legends and ancient religions. These, shown through her paintings, bring us lots of untold matters which represent the identity of this country. By a glance at her works, one can realize the relation between their colors and combinations and those of the rugs, which are the most suitable beds for keeping the ancient traditions. The most salient characteristics in her works are the existing of justifiability and mythical notions, great elegance in using colors and combinations, and rhythm and dynamism of the themes.
With no hesitation, the validity of her works has originated from luxuriance of experiences and honesty in expressing what is in her mind.
Life, nature and human are the important and shared indexes of the most of this artist’s works. The way of showing these images reminds ancient themes and old civilization works, as if she has learnt this way from her ancestors directly and is the heir of their knowledge.
Such these works are valuable treasures, and analyzing their aesthetic and justifiable aspects helps us to realize lots of relations and to reach a profound understanding of plenteous past of this art of the country.
