Currently on view at the Nathan Larramendy Gallery is the solo exhibition Pedestal featuring new paintings and sculpture by artist Amir H. Fallah. Continuing the use of imagery such as terrariums, botanicals and Persian miniature painting, Fallah’s work explores his experience of adolescent development when his interests were being formed and new paths were constantly discovered. Fallah has become known for his large scale fort structures, which are built intuitively on site and can reach over 16 ft in both height and width. Fallah has exhibited these structures at the L.A.Louver Gallery in Los Angeles, RHYS Gallery in Boston, Art Dubai 2008, Dubai U.A.E., and has work scheduled to be exhibited at Redux Contemporary Art Center in Charleston, SC this fall.
Amir, who is a previous DailyServing interviewee, is also the founder and creative director of Beautiful/Decay Magazine, an international quarterly publication that is a synthesis of art, design, fashion, music and contemporary culture. Exhibiting simultaneously with Pedestal will be the photographic works of Fallah in the group exhibition After the Revolution: Contemporary Photography from Tehran and California on view at the San Francisco Arts Commission at City Hall until June 27th.
