Sevil Amini (b.1977, Teheran, Iran) holds a M.F.A. from Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan where she graduated in 2013 from the Painting Department. She earned her first B.A. in graphic design in 2003 from Azad Univercity of Art and Architecture in Teheran and her second B.A. in 2009 from Florence Academy of Fine Arts.
She works with different mediums including drawing, painting, video art, installation and photography. Sevil Amini‘s artistic research is influenced by two heterogeneous cultures and worldviews. The one of her origin, which is the East, and the other, which is the philosophy and history of Western art.
During her studies in Italy, she dealt with the problem of emptiness in the image as well as with the historical and philosophical tendencies that lead artists to monochrome paintings, performances and immaterial art. This gave rise to the subject of her pictorial practice, in which she sought to realise her own narrative style. A style that combines the emptiness of Western monochrome imagery with the detailed richness of Persian miniatures.
Emptiness reveals itself as the presence of absence, loss in relation to the dimension of totality, moments of crisis, a gap in the dynamics of the flow of meaning.
