The Caravan by Ali Banisadr

The Caravan by Ali Banisadr 2020 (oil on linen)

This image evokes a lot of emotions from the sporadic and bold use of these wild and swaying brush strokes to create such an interesting abstraction. It “looks” like a caravan by some stretch of the imagination, maybe even a circus caravan by the wheel in the lower half of the painting and the bars on the cage that appear near the middle of the painting. It seems to be more composed of figures and shapes perhaps to accentuate the constant and frequent movements of its members, though a large number of these shapes and forms look monstrous or figure like to me.
