about this work
From Archaic Techniques of Chemia.

In the series "Archaic Techniques of Chemia“ Ahmadi explores how the magic of alchemy has captivated people for millennia. Flasks, funnels and test tubes merge into protagonists of love whose figurativity remains fuzzy and evolves through the observer's individual imagination.

Hinted shapes and expressive brush strokes face fine details which attest a careful attention by the artist. Ahmadi uses a radiant, multi colour palette applied upon a monochromatic background to show the space where the elixir of love is born.

Drawn into all the details that are meant to be discovered, we are unexpectedly caught by the power of alchemy and we ourselves become searchers. What has aroused chemists in their laboratories for a long time, does not miss its force on canvas and agitates any art lover.
