“I was only 5 years old when light first grabbed my attention. I was sitting in a room by a window with shuttered heavy curtains, leaving only a small distance in between them, where a miracle was happening. Contrasting with the dark room a ray of light was brightening a narrow space, I could see the playful movement of dust in the air that was visible to me for the first time. I was mesmerized, not just for seeing the dust but for feeling something novel, powerful, and beautiful: light.” Aras Karimi

I look at photography as a relationship between light and film: light as a playful actor and film as a serious recorder. The job of a photographer, which is experimental by nature, is to write the best scenario for this one-time instant play. A genuine play is inevitably the result of accurate eyes, free mind, and fundamentals of photography at heart.

Light is the subject of my works. Unlike the usual process in photography that uses light as a mean to record a scene and tell its story, I am interested in light as a story teller. In fact the scene in my works is the medium to picture light, its mood on different surfaces, and its personality in different spaces.

All of my photographs are purposefully Untitled. I like to give a chance to the viewer to experience their own emotion while they are coinciding with an expression of mine. It is also unnatural to apply a rational meaning to something that is opposite from being a product of intellect as all of my works are pure reflections of my vision, and emotion at the moment the shot is taken.” [Aras Karimi : Statement]

I’m interested in the non-verbal dialogue that occurs between line, shape, and color. The elements in my paintings are composed of shapes that are indistinct. They may appear to be something specific, but that remains in question. This uncertainty, as well as their interaction within what appears to be a landscape, is at the core of my paintings. I’m interested in the line that divides the perceived rational world from the inner landscape. In my work I’m focusing on composing and dissolving of forms, creating paintings that are both organic and structured, often whimsical. I’m inspired by relationship that exists between land and sky and the forms that link the two together; the gaseous quality of smoke or a mist combined with the rigid form of a tower; the expansiveness of a body of water met with undecipherable man made structures; to make solid the space that lays between two elements creating a unique form.
