Lot Details

"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).
