Savalan’s figures represent semi-human lumps, silently residing and wondering in the middle of of a field of nowhere. They seem to be portraits at a glance, though they may fade away all of a sudden. Vague masses in an unknown misty geographical situation, under a timeless gentle light evading from any signs that reveal their reference; both for those who are totally unacquainted with the masses and those who seek pale traces of the mythical, historical Dāshbaba legends. Such imagery solely represent an apocalyptic scene; all significations are lost. The scene is exhibiting a momentum stands still just before, or right after the catastrophe.
It is the viewpoint of a subject which creates a narrative by creating casual connections between events. The artist’s point of view is not subjective; nor does he tend to create a narration for the audience by perusing relationships and semantic casual connections between the figures and the scenes. He does not put the question here, he is wondering along with us, staring at the shattered scenes and seeking the lost narratives.
