I am proud of this piece I have from Soheila Sokhanvari. It’s currently on loan for her solo show at the Arhus museum “Rebel, Rebel”, and was also part of her earlier show with the same title at the Barbican in London. This piece comes from a series of work that presents pre-revolution Iranian women in their full strength and vigour. Soheila was the first artist I started working with when I opened the gallery 12 years ago, so she has a special place in my heart.
Tobeh in Persian translates to repentance, the title is named after a film that was released in 1972 in Iran, starring Zahra Khoshkam. After the Islamic revolution many writers, poets, actors, and artists were called to sign a letter of repentance and their career came to an end, however, Zahra was the first female performer who was declared a “chaste actress” and was allowed to continue to perform in Iranian cinema after the revolution.

I love to collect artists from our gallery family, and do so in depth. The latest artist that joined us is Tuan Vu. Tuan’s first solo show with us is in March in the London (Wandsworth) gallery. I am captivated by the poetry and the mood in his paintings.
Interested in Tuan Vu's work?
