On view from February 12 to April 2, 2016, Sarvenaz Amanat’s exhibition 'Self-Hell' features a series dramatic ink drawings and conceptual sculptures depicting the many diverse emotions experienced by human beings. These revealing and evocative works seek to capture the dichotomy of the human condition, both the negative and the positive, and bring the fragile subtleties of our temporal existence to the surface. Amanat has collated these expressive drawings to produce a comprehensive picture book meant for contemplation and introspection. The result is a radically different perspective on today's cultural preoccupation with 'self-help'. The exhibit explores the complex journey from sadness and confusion to joy and hope. Amanat, who typically draws in a classical realist style, has chosen a simple graphic medium to evoke these diverse emotions - from the fractured landscape of depression and anxiety to integration and renewed joy.
