'TIME - OUT'

I Still Wonder Where You Are Tezh Modarressi
Exhibition dates: August 28 to October 25, 2015
Opening reception Friday August 28 from 6 to 9:00 pm


Tezh Modarressi b.1965 - a Baltimore native, graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1988. She exhibits in Boston, Providence, Philadelphia, Baltimore and New York. She currently lives in Philadelphia.

"Tezh Modarressi's small-scale paintings... are psychologically charged ...showers of sunlight can't help but recall Vermeer, they're calming amid the shadows and emptiness of many of her rooms."
Cate McQuaid - The Boston Globe

Modarressi says "This exhibition titled 'Time out' took shape because I paint interiors, seeking to capture the nuances of light and shadow that enter our rooms. I have developed a technique using thin layers of oil with washes of glaze that help to bring out the light. Starting with a bright palette, I then paint 'backwards' to mute the colors. This creates the subtle tones in the bands of light I seek to portray.
For this exhibition, I added glimpses of the outside world in some of the pieces - literally, time out. In the paintings that I left without an outside source I retained a feeling of serenity - a quiet moment in time as in someone's personal 'Time Out'.



Modarressi's "I Still Wonder Where You Are" is a remarkable poetic vision of light and shadow. The light warms the interior space from a window and an open door.
The interior with its cool palette is illuminated from outside where we see only a glimpse of the warmth and green of the outdoors. Devoid of objects except a single chair and a table the room is left for us to inhabit ...or to simply walk thru the door; a metaphor of opportunity. Or perhaps as the title suggests, the chair awaits a visitor from outside seeking an awaited return.

There are numerous metaphors and opportunities for interpretation. However, Modarressi's work stands on its own with her accomplished use of oil and washes that bring a spiritual illumination to this hauntingly mysterious space.
