Vanecha EBRAHIMI ROUDBARAKI was born in Rasht, Iran on November, 18th 1966. Given her environment and her life in the wild she was seeking, while pursuing her primary and secondary studies, for "something" that would answer the great question she kept asking herself since her childhood: The relationship among Man and Nature and his existence in its very relationship with nature. She ended finding the synthesis of her intimate questions in the art of painting.
Vanecha, in words means: The transplanting of a young plantation.
These words, at the same time simple and beautiful, used by the rice growers of the north of Iran in a way to speak of the rice transplanting, constitute another source of inspiration for Vanecha ROUDBARAKI as a concern to her subjective philosophy in her relationship to nature as well about her tangible and tactile objectivity in her permanent encounter with men of her environment, that is to say all those who, by transplanting the bead in the matrix of nature with endless energy, give a meaning to the continuation of life.
Vanecha got her diploma, a master in Mathematics, in the University of Guilan in 1989.To the question I asked her:
"Considering all the required delicacies and sensitivities in art, which relationship the painter likes you can keep with Mathematics?"
She answers me:
"In Mathematics” the “critical point" has the considerable importance.
I had the will to seek in nature this point of origin. As I needed it, I found there only passion and tenderness. There was neither border, nor limit and non Point."
Vanecha established herself in Paris in 1991.
I ended asking her that question: "Through which window is you look at the outside world?"
"From the cradle of my birth, Iran I opened a window on a flower garden, a window on an unlimited nature… I come from that cradle of life, Iran: a truth that is always familiar to me and that is inside me. I draw my inspiration from it so I can see, usually, and in the best way, man and nature on the other side of that wide and open window…" She answered without delay.
