Catalogue published on the occasion of 'At Once', an exhibition of oil paintings by the New York-based Iranian artist Ali Banisadr at Blain|Southern, London from February to March 2015.

'Oscillating between the abstract and the figurative, Banisadr’s paintings feature fantastical landscapes populated with grotesque hybrids in a perpetual state of frenzy. These charactersconflations of animal, god, machine and humanare deftly captured in whirling, exuberant brushstrokes. Frequently there is a sense of a heaven and earth: in the lower half, we witness temporal struggles, physical conflict and angst, while above the characters seem more at peace; as if they have surrendered themselves to the ether.' - excerpted from the website of the gallery.

Includes an interview between the artist and philosopher, critic and media theorist, Dr Boris Groys. With artist biography and bibliography.
