Faezeh Baharloo (b. 1988, Iran) holds a BA in Painting from the Department of Art & Architecture, Isfahan University of Art, Iran (2012) and an MA in Illustration from Tehran University of Art, Iran (2014). Through her paintings, Baharloo combines indoor and outdoor elements and exposes their deterioration into one another. She utilises a free association technique, deforming the human body with natural objects, thereby creating a paradoxical composition that, at first glance, appears to be still life work. Essentially, Baharloo wishes to communicate that humans are not destroyers of nature, but are themselves a part of nature teetering on the edge of self-destruction.
