About Red Earth

The local red earth named "Gelak". This red earth is used to cook "Soragh" which is a traditional food. It consists of organic earth, fish and a kind of lemon or sour orange "Nareng". Usually Soragh is served with bread. Experience shows that the colored earth doesn't affect the body, so we enjoyed using this earth as a medium for art.

Unfortunately, a local company exports this valuable earth and uses it in some industry. Unfortunately, most of the people of Hormoz are poor and have no income and many receive charity from the government. We artists aim to introduce the value of this earth as an art material and we invite all artists across the globe to visit this beautiful island.

"The Bird of Peace

On the first January 2008 we received British sculptor, Benjamin Hewett (Ben) who came to our Paradise. On the 2nd of April 2008, Ben went back home. Before he left I give him one of my carvings which had a design of a bird. I called this bird the Bird of Peace. Ben will take it home and make a nest in a hollow of a tree where he lives and this bird will start a new life.

Paintings by Red Earth

I usually use red earth from Hormoz in Persian Gulf and make painting on portraits of people. For me symbolism of snake and its contradictory interpretations in different cultures is very interesting.  In the one hand snake is a symbol for eternity and treasure and on the other hand related to the story of Adam and Eve in heaven.
