Alireza Chalipa
Opening: November 4, 2016

O Gallery presents “Prevalence,” a new collection of paintings by Alireza Chalipa (b. 1984, Shiraz).

Prevalence

… Just like the curved sharp cambrel that is hooked, time that is slowed, dragged and dense and … is then stopped.  Sight that is blurry, moist and shines from the prevalence of an anticipation heavy and long; restless for that moment before.

—Alireza Chalipa

Footnote: Prevalence is an approach to a distinctness that attempts to portray the still moment before that which happens.  The moment that brings about the most memorable image for all people at time of recollection.
