Mentored by her father Afshan Daneshvar's meditative works are inspired by Siah Mashgh, Persian Calligraphic practice sheets. Words and letters are repeated regardless of meaning for the sake of achieving perfection. Since 2015, she has been exploring paper as a medium.


There is a direct dialogue between content and form throughout Afshan’s work. Repetition is focal. Through reiteration, she binds past and future. The present is constantly reinforced.
