Cinamon 1995

Excerpt from the Essay by Hagai Segev “Fields of Flowers and Contemplation”, in the catalogue of the exhibition ” Farideh’s Paintings 1970 – 2006.
In the series “Golden Pages” the color profusion and the multiple strokes on the paper are reduced to abstract, fine and subtle works of gold and silver. The effect is one of “Sublime Art” and has affinity with the Byzantine Religious Art mainly due to the use of gold and silver as noted by art critic Smadar Sheffi. The motifs themselves are not at all religious, even if a sense of sanctity is conveyed by the contemplation and abstraction.
