Reza Bahmani’s oil paintings, with each’s distinctive texture and scale, carry a distinct intimacy. In his recent show at Saless Gallery an accompanying score that required the use of headphones further beckoned viewers to focus on the massive portraits.
His recent body of work was created in tandem with a collection of musical compositions. Musicians involved with the project include pianist Behnam Abolqasem, Pedram Fryvsfy, Meysam Marvasti and several others.
