SYMPHONY OF e-motion / SOLO EXHIBITION / napa valley museum
oPENING SATURDAY, JANUARY 21, 2017 / 5-8pm
jANUARY 21, 2017–APRIL 16, 2017
A visual journey into the mind of an artist, literally.
The Napa Valley Museum is proud to present the work of international artist and sculptor Boback Emad as he transforms the gallery into a dynamic journey of E-motions.
This two month show is a unique glimpse into his creative process.
“When I cut an angle from a square the new shape begins to communicate with its surroundings. There is a sense of emotion and feeling that is created from this simple transformation. Connection and disconnection. Depending on the angle, the shapes express emotion. The possibilities run wild in my mind as the shapes start talking to each other and before I know it I am surrounded in a symphony of emotions”
