    Sara Ranj Keshan “Saraanj” (b. 1993, Tehran, Iran) holds a Bachelor degree in Painting and Arts Research from Tehran Central Open University. Feeding her curiosity and reflection, Saranj goes on a quest about Abrahamic religions with the visual culture of which she shares the most kinship. Inspired by the Revelation of John the Apostle, she believes it is due to man’s escape from the dreadful inner solitude that he finds refuge in words. “First, there was word …” creates a world of the unsaid, believes Saranj. The culture of Christianity has its foundations in image, and one of the key features of these images is the representation of pain. Once inspired by this visual culture, the fathomable meaning of solitude and her own ideology, she reaches out to painting and mass. In her previous collection, “Absolutely Personal, for Public” Saranj shared a fragment of her inner words with her audience. Basically, she seeks to articulate herself with unknown, new words. She is now living and working in Tehran.
