My husband told me recently “you should really change the bullshit text you have about your nomads painting!”… this is how it goes:
These nomads are carpet weavers. On their carpets they weave pictures of the stories of their lives. They weave as they go and carry all their belongings. All of them, young or old, pregnant, carrying babies, carrying everything. They walk all day, day after day, and sleep anywhere. Life is simple. They have very little, only the necessary. They walk across the plains, through the fields full of rich colours and textures. This beauty is the fabric of their life woven in their carpets.
I think I could live like this; I admire their life; I admire these people.
This painting is inspired by a movie from Iran called Gabbeh that is about those nomads.
In the movie, the truth is that their lives actually have just as much confusion and misery as our complex modern lives…..
