  • Exhibition
Fariba's upbringing in Iran has sincerely affected her perception towards art. Namely, it has given awareness regarding the convergence of history, social events, and related environmental settings. This influence gives expression and life in the art of capturing. Fariba's masterful ethereal abstract explores the connection between the human body and delicate elements of nature. Fariba's creations evolve as different personal events impact her life. A healthy balance between organic and earth tone colors allows the incorporation of variety and diversity to her creation. Fariba is not bound to one medium or method of imagination. Fariba's work can be found in numerous exhibitions in Toronto and New York. Artistic expression comes in stages and each stage takes a different mood, method, and medium to fully complete itself.

ag_artist_statement : Growing up in Iran, I was constantly aware of the many artistic aspects that thousands of years of history created in that unique environment. This influenced my own personal expression in the art of capturing, in particular, the lives of women and how they evolved and adjusted to their freedoms in their place in the world. A few years ago, my house burned down and I lost all of my paintings and my family's belongings. After that time, the colors I chose for my painting were more organic and earth tones and my style became strictly abstract. I slowly incorporated more variety and diversity. Now, I am not bound to one medium or method of painting: I believe artistic expression comes in stages and each stage takes a different mood, method, and medium to fully complete itself.
ag_biography : Fariba Baghi believes that art acts as a bridge to enlightened consciousness; a genuine expression of the soul. Born in Tehran, Iran, Baghi spent her early life immersed in a rich artistic culture dating back thousands of years. This overabundance of inspiration stimulated her imagination and led to an insatiable desire to create. Drawing from her meditative practice, as well as the work of poets such as Rumi and Hafiz, Baghi seeks to express a harmony between oneself and the universe, which she creates using a delicate balance between aged earthy tones and the ethereal human forms she depicts. Witnessing the Iranian Islamic revolution in her youth, Baghi was exposed to a sudden overwhelming change in society and a major loss of freedom, specifically for women. This led her to emigrate to Canada in search of a more open society. Following a house fire a few years ago in which she lost all of her possessions and paintings, Baghi found herself dramatically shifting her style to abstraction and began incorporating hand-ground pigments that she creates using materials such as wine, coffee, various vegetables, and spices.
