THE PERSIAN PAINTINGS


"Images from this group of paintings are now nothing more than spectres. However, they are spectres praising what is beyond techonology. Hope – angels, the Archangel Gabriel, Mohammed, Buddha, Abraham, beauty, the sublime paradise, drunken maidens who pour the wine – praise to you, and bring these spectres into communion with you. With such proximity, we may perhaps start the millennium all over again."
