My desire was to analyze miniature painting critically and not just make miniature paintings.

It’s the outcome of [my] progression as an artist that involved a distancing from miniature painting that was a natural outcome of my progression and growth as an artist.

I haven’t worked with Persian tales or Hindu mythology, that’s a myth. I’m not interested in narrative based content that accompanies a lot of miniature painting.

I think that also has a lot to do with my personal experience with my extended family. I feel very lucky, very privileged to have had this experience because my grandfather was very encouraging towards careers for women.

I never thought I came from a religious background. And things I do might be considered religious, but it’s so much what you are comfortable with.

I think the hard part is when you’re out of practice.

What I am referring to are the embedded and often invisible structures that steer the way we think in daily life.

What I am interested is in the ways of looking into people’s imaginations. Sometimes one zooms in and sometimes one zooms out. Therefore, in different contexts, histories and methods unfold in different ways.

I am interested in perception and therefore, with how definitions get stretched or trespassed, be it gender, beliefs, or the notion of a state.

I have always wondered if it might have been possible for there to be no label for ‘art’, and if ‘art’ could have been more integrated into our daily life.

I am interested in ‘definitions’ and often use the wide range of material that is available around this to explain myself.

I thought photography was the most appropriate medium for my subject as it had the realism that I needed.

I am very inspired by the new trend in Iranian cinema. In my opinion, it has been one positive aspect of the revolution, as it has in a way purified Iranian culture artistically by eliminating Western influences that had deeply infiltrated our culture.

Turbulent was my first cinematic film. Prior to that, I had made a few videos which I consider very different; they were video installations, very sculptural, with no specific narrative, beginning or end.
