Gallery Artist Sanaz Mazinani in SF Weekly


"Infinite Regress: Two Iranian Artists Multiply Their Spiritual Images"

"With an arts tradition that goes back more than 5,000 years, and a modern art scene that embraces everything from graffiti to avant-garde film, Iran is one of the world's greatest countries to experience the visual arts. It's a travesty that Iran has been off-limits to most Americans since 1979, when a revolution turned it into a pariah state..." - Jonathan Curiel, SF Weekly
