The paintings of Arianpour study the human experience and its physical a menthaphysical position in the world. Sara is mostly interested in the suffering of the soul. In her various work you can see the unconcious testimony of the sad condition of being a women in a society in wich being a women doesn´t count anything. Her works are dedicated to everybody but they represent a smothered cry of the soul of the condition of being a Nobody. The art of Arianpour reminds us of the famous painting "Cry" by Edwar Munch or it brings us back of the plastic points of view of the pictures of Francis Bacon. However the subject matters are deeper, because they aren´t about one individual person but about the condition of the several people that all are Nobodies. Her way of representing everyone´s thoughts painting is really touching. It´s impossible to stay indifferent in front of her artworks!

The works of Sara Arianpour are sad poems, where gray colours emerge from the darkness to tell the subtle melancholy that wants to take precedence over all the joyfulness of life. A mysterious song comes alive with rapid and evanescent brush stroke, with flashes and spiritual purple, notes of slow music of loneliness and abandon. Memories of distant events in time have become expressive amorphose figures of unsubsided pain. The mortified bodies having become shadows forcefully denounce the laceration of imprisoned souls who yearn for the freedom. The paintings give shapes to scene of stories that make us hear, mute the deafening screams of hopeless resignation. The grids separate the toughts , which have become a tangle of brush stroke, from the bodies. Vigorous touches of red are breached to give strenght to the dreams that come, still hidden behind impenetrable barriers. The constraint of being manifests itself in the transfiguration of image that reflects an ego in search of himself, with his identity in peace and in non-violence.
