The Ethereal by Y.Z. Kami

Y.Z. Kami, Iranian-born artist Chelsea studio

“If you look at it from a distance, it looks focused. But the more you get closer to it, it gets very fuzzy. I wanted to give the viewer the feeling that the light is coming from the hand, so, the viewer has a mystical experience.”

His other works from the current exhibition reminded me the show of another Iranian artist, Shiraz-born Shirazeh Houshiary by Lisson Gallery at Venice 2013 Biennial (hopefully, one day all the photos will be uploaded!)

If in NY don't miss his solo show at Gagosian NY that runs through February 22, 2014. Opening Reception on 2014-01-16 from 18:00 to 20:00
