About Rouzbeh Tahmassian

"My work is created in the midst of emotions. I follow my feelings on how the process is going and what materials the artwork needs. Among all this the science and precision in me stir up all the time. In my profession as a hospital pharmacist it requires to be precise and accurate. The recent years I've fused my work as a pharmacist and a visual artist more and more. I use chemical compounds and make my own perfect orchistrated combination of Damar resin and beeswax for example. To influence the viscosity of my paint and wax I use chemicals like sorbitol and glycerol and integrate burnt pages out of pharmaceutical books into my artworks. I'm intensely drawn to the unknown: an unknown effect, an unknown material and an unknown twist of work. It's what keeps me motivated to fabricate new work in this epic battle between the flow of feelings and the science of Pharmacy"
