Reza Derakshani - Hunting the Light

26 January - 10 March 2018

Sophia Contemporary is proud to present 'Hunting the Light', the Iranian-American artist Reza Derakshani's second solo show with the gallery following their successful inaugural exhibition of his work. 'Hunting the Light' will feature twelve new works demonstrating Derakshani's continued quest for a visual language that bridges Iranian artistic traditions with Western contemporary and abstract inclinations. On view from January 26 through March 10, 2018, the exhibition will include new works from three of Derakshani's ongoing series: 'Hunting,' 'Garden Party,' and 'Shirin and Khosrow.' The new paintings in the series continue in the trademark vivid and expressive style of Derakshani's earlier works, and are executed in oil on canvas.
