Master of Fine Arts (MFA)
© 2016 Shabnam Yousefian
My works are all a reflection of my own life, beliefs, experiences and goal. For me art is an oasis of opportunities. It allows me to utilize my innate abilities and imaginations without any obstructions.
I am drawn to painting because of its capacity to reflect the world I live in. My goal is to demonstrate the fact that what is done in life has a reflection on us as well as our surrounding environment. My paintings are abstractions of the real places. Reflection implies clarity; however it is unclear at the same time. To me reflection is clearer than reality. Things are not always what they seem; the first appearance can be deceiving. Reflection can reveal the hidden reality.
