The first in a new series to premier in London, it is how we see through the looking glass into the portal, and find ourselves staring vividly back at ourselves. It is these moments, like the Eclipse that act as a portal into our own hearts and minds. The flares from one side to the other are undeniable.
Nima Veiseh painting explores the dynamic nature of memory and its reflection of the human condition. His process is enabled by Hyperthymesia, an extremely rare condition of having highly superior memory -- an anomaly affecting 50 people worldwide, where he remembers every day of his life like film since the age of 15. His work renders natural moments of transition and connectivity into artistic expression, by exploring subjects as they journey through time. Hyperthymesia allows him to paint and see life in terms many layers. The dense overlays of paint involved in each piece, over 35 to 65 hours of continuous process spanning months, are true to the additive, integrated and ever changing nature of memory, and his technique is referential to gesturalism and abstractionism.
