The abstract world in modern art has always searched for its ideals in geometry crystalized in numerous styles such as cubism and constructivism. The leading shape in all such geometric trends is "square": a regular, emphatic, obvious, and steady shape, which is easily composed with the rectangular frame of the picture. All these features, in my opinion, simply unveil a masculine attitude that implies a world of strictly ordered structure and rigid system.

However, the main core of my works is "triangle" which conversely symbolizes disorder, chaos, uncertainty and dissonance that may represent feminine tendencies. The lines, angles, and triangles in my works are full of diversity in shapes and colors, and never steady and calm. Their dynamic and relentless nature is eager for freedom as there exists no trace of stability and static states of right angles in them. The clashes of triangles, fierceness of lines and struggle of sharp angles are not meant to present an idea in form and composition, but refer to the concepts associated with movement, fluidity, and floating images. They tend to avoid from with the formalistic world of modern painting and rather allude to conceptual connotations.
 
Visual elements in my paintings are combined to form a language in which shapes, color and movement signify a variety of concepts to symbolize contradictory aspects of human life including tranquility and chaos, aggression and defense, captivity and freedom, attraction and rejection, softness and violence, joy and pain, and etc. The inevitable destiny of floating surfaces and suspended volumes in my works is to put an end to the feelings of immobility and steadiness, expressing motion, eruption, struggle, and eventually freedom.
