The very first idea of “the notes” tended to conceptual drawing (drawing without real model or visual source) that from childhood was set inside me as an interest and attitude. Definitely, early terms of B.A in art are the beginning of these drawings and move from imitation of a real idea to creative conceptual drawings. At the end of my M.A I took it seriously and it was when I wrote date and signed my works and kept them.
The common point of these artworks (since beginning) was the small size of drawings that caused to be drawn in a short time and just with a pen or marker. But, what make “the notes” different from others in theme, is that they can be made in a short time and small size, with no difference from big and complicated ones and all the visual elements are shown in them. Also, the artist is able to express his intention in a small size work.
Considering form and content, two main periods are considered for this series. The first period from 1378 till 1389 and the second period since 1389 till now. In the first period, specific subjects can be distinguished. The content contains daily routines and human challenges and human relationship with environment, animal and nature. Also, regarding form, aesthetic and visual ideas, there are a variety of forms and structures. On the other hand, in the second period, the content has changed and most of the time challenges and questions like human and his life are appeared. This series artworks are going inside human and his unknown attitude and what has affected his life. But, in form, most of the work have similar visual structure.
But in 1391 the sketches of “the notes” were published in a book with the same name. a year before that, “Mostafa Eghbali” a young artist and a friend of mine presented this idea and collected, scanned and edited these works- more than five thousands sketches- and the end of this process, “Mehdi Sadeghi” (Rasm Publication manager) was informed about the artworks and accepted to publish them. Hereby, I appreciated both of them and hope them a happy and successful life.
