A visually challenged Iranian woman has put on show dozens of her amazing paintings at an exhibition in Tehran.

Maryam Heydarzadeh, a well-known Iranian lyricist, has displayed 30 of her acrylic works of art with the theme of “nature,” especially autumn, at an exhibit called “After All Those Yearnings.”

The works on show have diverse features, but they are all brimming with a simple and straightforward view toward nature. The paintings are the handiwork of a woman poet who has vague memories of scenic nature.

She lost her eyesight when she was only three and a half years old.

Her works of art do not contain any portraits. The presence of humans as well as animals is ambiguous as well. From the perspective of this artist, nature contains plants as if seen from behind a foggy glass. So, the paintings do not contain a high contrast.

Heidarzadeh’s paintings are on display at Mozhdeh Art Gallery in northwest Tehran, and will be open to visitors until December 7, 2018.

What follows are Honar Online’s photos of her works at the gallery:
