Sundays

2019

In his “Sundays” series (2018), Sasan Abri has made use of his signature watercolor-like photographic printing technique, in which flowers tell the story of mortality of humankind and the immortality of memories. Buying flowers on Sundays that used to be a weekly habit for the artist together with someone who is no longer there, has now become a ritual to retain their shared memories. With the passionate, impressionistic flowers, the photographs of “Sundays” series have a painterly and unruly quality. The juxtaposition of the dark background with the warm and cold colors of the foreground allude to the contradictions and finite characteristics of the flow of life. As each Sunday ends, another Sunday will come to take its place.
