"With art I came to know my true self through my strengths and weaknesses. When I work I must be honest with my nature in order to be creative and original. I think that life is like a river flowing. Every time I wash my hands in this river I have different feelings due to ever changing motion of its waters. Every work I made is an expression of these feelings. I feel happy within myself when I acknowledge and accept the changing nature of my thought and feelings and witnessing the flow of my river of life." Parvaneh Roudgar’s inspiration emerges from her roots in Italy and Iran where she emanates fundamentally from four areas. Naturally deriving thematic routes following the classic western and Persian civilization, and arrives at the expressive modules of the modern and contemporary sculpture. Roudgar finds a particular meaning in the study of human image, particularly the maternity of a female that takes shape in forms of passion and strong dynamism that transform the original figurative elements into morphing art forms that evoke great vigar. The fluidity of the figures forms lines marking the curves of a body that reach to communicate the suffering, the pain, without still failing with the aesthetic dimension of the image in its complex. Parvaneh Roudgar’s “Construction Sculptures” arise from the analyses of the concept of “geometric abstraction”: an analysis deriving from an ancient Persian culture which has been characterized by such qualities for thousands of years. Parvaneh Roudgar began her journey in art in 1986 studying at the Artistic Lyceum in Florence under the instruction of her Professor of Sculpture, Antonio Di Tommaso, and renowned Professor of Ceramics, Marcello Fantoni. After concluding her art studies at the University of Eta' Libera of Florence she went on to specialize in ceramics, plaster and casting, especially being fascinated by geometric and abstract sculptures.

Today Roudgar lives in Canada where she is able to work and interact with a diversity of cultures and people, and this co-mingling of traditions is poignantly evocative within her different styles of work. She has received her Certificate in Working with Stone at the Art School of Porta Romana in Florence and has since been the recipient of numerous prizes internationally. She has been teaching in various art colleges and in her private studios for the past 25 years. Alongside having her works exhibited in many different countries in North America, Asia and Europe, in 2016, Parvaneh’s most recent work “Mother and Child on a Bike” was commissioned and permanently installed in the Inlet Skytrain Station in Port Moody (Canada). Her works are part of the collection of the Salsali’s Museum in Dubai and different projects have been displayed as outdoor sculptures in North America and Iran.
