Photoart

Pirasteh's imagery explores spaces without boundaries. These are uncrowded spaces, unpolluted, with a minimum of detail. Solitude and loneliness abound. The influence of Iranian landscapes takes prominence with the distortion of hues and the colour blue, creating breathtaking atmospheres.

Her landscapes express powerful emotions showing an exceptional range and quality, her dramatic monochrome photographs are often combined with paint, collage, and other media as vehicles of self expression and mood.

She recreates the world with her own visual language, images that are melancholy, desolate, beautiful and sometimes idiosyncratic.
