ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Identical twin artists, Bahareh & Farzaneh Safarani, share a multimedia practice. They create in unison, intertwining classical painting, ceremonial performance, and a subtle use of video projected onto the painted surface. This combination of mediums creates a portal through which the viewer can enter into their intimate interiors to share a quiet moment of observation with their luminous figures.

Born and raised in Tehran, Iran, the sisters discovered their collaborative practice at an early age and have been creating inseparably ever since. After pursuing a rigorous fine arts training at the University of Tehran, they received their MFA degrees in Studio Arts from the College of Art, Media & Design at Northeastern University and SMFA in Boston. Their work has been shown in solo and group shows in the United States and internationally in Tehran, Beijing and London. We invite you to linger in their keenly rendered liminal space.
