Biography from MATIN FINE ART:
Vazari Naze ( b. Iran 1936)
 
Vazari's artistic experience expands over half a century. He graduated from School of Fine arts, Tehran University with a concentration on painting and drawing before attending the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome, Italy in 1965, where he studied space and stage design for opera.  Vaziri then attended the University of Michigan for Graduate Studies in 1971.  Finally, in 1973, Vaziri finalized his Post Graduate studies concentrating on photography and cliché-verre.  

He has created a vast body of artwork including work that combines musical rhythms and photography.  Vazari translates nuances of music into his photography, offering the viewer equivalent meanings in two separate mediums.  Today, mixed photography and cliché-verre is Vazari's main medium of expression.  The fluid lines created with Vazari's cliché-verre prints are similar to etched lines and his effects are mysterious and beautiful abstractions.  Vazari's subject of interest is visual anthropology of food.  He examines food as having various meanings within the context of Persian, Italian, French and American culture. He then moves towards conceptualizing it as a symbolic substance embedded and invested with meaning, in its own terms and within the context of culture. Vazari investigates how food is associated with particular images and ideals and visually explores its role in maintaining aestheticisms, contesting and developing identity, inspiring cultural norms, senses of community and geographical spaces. His visual abstractions lead to many mind provoking comparative observations in which the viewer has no choice but to also question the political and economic circumstances that evoke such symbolism. Vazari's visual analysis of different food, such as fish or peach delves into certain cultural dimensions that examines similarities and varieties and yet at the same time permits the eye to take this visual information to a highly abstracted level of imagination.
