Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The figures represent my understanding of how many people in our society turned into stone. They are struggling with fears and pressure to a point that they lose their human contours. These human-like figures shape and shift around different situations which are represented by the colors and expressive forms but there is always a hint of hope of finding human shape again.

Artist Profile

Born: 1983

Hometown: Tehran

Based in: Germany

Iranian clarinetist and painter Shabnam Parvaresh was born in Tehran. She started her musical career as a clarinetist playing in the Tehran Symphony Orchestra and the National Traditional Orchestra. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts and Painting while pursuing a career as an artist and musician in Tehran. In 2014, she moved to Germany where she continues her studies in Jazz Clarinet in the Institute für Musik, Osnabrück. In Germany, she performed with Grammy Award Winner Kinan Azmeh at the Morgenland Festival Osnbarück and played in different bands and ensembles. In 2018 she won the Studyup Award Jazz with the Lukas Schwegmann Quintet. In 2020 she won the Zonta Music Price for Jazz Clarinet. In 2019 she found her new project Sheen Trio.

Shabnam Parvareshs works deliver a powerful, yet subtle, insight into the mindset of an independent woman stuck in a society worn out from decades of ideological tugging war and its devastating consequences concerning freedom of expression, agility, and reflection. While often exposed to governmental censorship, painting can bring relief under these grief conditions offering a pressure outlet in a society. Shabnam's paintings are like music on canvas, with this one, slight difference being - they are not over after 2,5 minutes. This comparison might sound strange, if it wasn't for the fact, that Shabnam is a musician too, a clarinetist. Felt rhythms, heard and unheard songs and sounds, textures touched and smelled, feelings that spring, listen, live, thrive, explode and in the end improvise their position within the discourse of reality, a reality experienced with all the senses. A reality that oftentimes proved tough in Iran, a reality of censored words, images, beliefs, and lifestyles. Silent on the surface, hurricanes on the inside, the canvas turned into a medium, strong as a whisper, heard with eyes. (Natalia Mateo)

"I always express my creative energy through two different channels. One being music and other being painting, but maybe they are not so different after all... In my paintings, I try to visualize the sounds that I hear and to materialize them on the canvas. The rhythms that I imagine provide the compositions on which I improvise. In my home Iran, sometimes painting was the only way to express my feelings silently on the outside, but very loudly on the inside..."
