BIOGRAPHY

Through her work, Maryam Shams creates a connection between humankind and its divine nature. Her passion for painting appeared very early on with her search for identity and questioning of the purpose of her life to give it meaning. She owes this mysticism in part to her Persian origins and her spiritual and artistic influences. Her paintings are the result of years of research beginning with studying and experimenting with academic techniques including portraiture, landscape and nudes. Then came the study of movement in ink, in which her aim was to fix the ephemeral in Parisian circuses. The artist then experimented with material, colour, collage and writing. Over time, her expression became freer and more abstract, more introspective too, as if this long aesthetic research marked the stages of a profound spiritual transformation. Maryam Shams has now found her own style free from imposed frameworks. The message of the work is presented as an enigma; the solution is left to the viewer’s intuition.

    Painting is for me the art of fixing the ephemeral. It obeys an "inner necessity" felt and experienced in the present moment. It is in this limited space-time that fleeting impressions are fixed. Once fixed, they never represent the same way.
