Teetering industrial structures ominous inevitable aging decay dominate much of Borders’ work. Her cityscapes and skylines bemoan the decline and disrepair of factories and refineries past their prime beneath colorfully damaged clouds. Borders wrestles with the insecure implications of the scenes she renders, meditating on American industrialism and its future while marveling at the monuments and wires it leaves in its wake. The color choices and mixed media on Borders’ canvases, cut striking auras and unwaveringly fateful silhouettes into her deep, expansive compositions. Each leaning set of power lines indicates a looming inevitability, but behind them are swirling chaotic patterns of clouds that Borders juxtaposes against her subjects in chaotically harmonious unions.Borders work has been sold across the world and found homes in collections throughout the United States and Europe. She brings sensibilities from her extensive background in Persian art learned in her native Iran together with distinctly Western currents of topicality and style. Website: www.pouran.com

Persian-American Artist Pouran Borders taps her fascination with industrial and urban architecture in order to create strikingly beautiful scenes of a world on the verge of apocalypse. Here, the blackened man-made structures of the urban, industrial landscape painted from a low angle, in the foreground contrast and compete with the vibrant colors of the cloudy sky looming behind. The brisk brush stroke technique employed by the artist gives the work a physical texture that enhances the landscape’s visible texture while heightening the energy of the chaotic harmony inherent in each scene. Along with the urban landscape, Borders draws inspiration from the Persian literary tradition, citing Molana, Roomi, and Kaiyam as having a great impact on her life outlook. These influences manifest themselves in her pieces’ meaning: the water towers and telephone poles peopling her work represent what Borders calls “the fragile state of our global society.” For her they show the duality of humanity, as a crushing impediment on the natural landscape while simultaneously being a fragile entity, susceptible to decay.
