Rossi & Rossi and Janet Rady Fine Art are delighted to announce: Fire of Love, Amin Roshan's
first solo exhibition in London.
It is not easy to say why I have chosen oil as a themeā€¦The main reason may be its excessive
impact and influence not only on my life and family but also on the geography of Iran - Amin
Roshan
Amin Roshan is an Iranian multi-disciplinary artist whose output is deeply informed by his
Bahktiari tribal heritage and his family's involvement for many generations in the country's oil
industry. Roshan was born in the Naftoon district of Masjid-i-Sulamain in the Khuzestan Province
of southwestern Iran, where the first oil well in the Middle East was discovered. His formative
years were shaped by the physical presence of oil in and around the streets where he grew up.
The family re-located to Ahwaz, a city in the South West of Iran near the border with Iraq, when
Amin was a child. Here he later trained in graphic design and so broke the family tradition of
employment in the oil industry.
His works draw on archive materials with oil, literally and metaphorically, sourced from home. The
role played by the British alongside the Iranians in the establishment of the oil industry lies at the
heart of his compositions. Historical British-produced maps, standard issue helmets and blow
torches are re-purposed as works of art with the deployment of crude oil and tea, the much loved
beverage. Vintage photographs of key political players and events, Bahktiari grave stones,
scenes from the Iran-Iraq war battle front and oil well heads demonstrate the clash of
civilisations and the socio-political and economic developments which ensued in the wake of
the exploitation of oil. Refreshingly, Roshan's works neither condemn nor celebrate the oil
business, rather he presents the cautionary view of an informed insider fluent in the complexities
of the subject.
