A Comment by my American- Italian artist Abigail Doan

Ahmad Nadalian's recent work created with his students and colleagues at the Environmental Art Festival in the Persian Gulf might actually save the world. I believe that every one who experiences these pieces and their environmental optimism, might believe once and for all, that there are indeed solutions to the environmental ills and conflicts that we face in the world.

Ahmad Nadalian Sand Prints

Susan Lomuto

With a profound respect for the environment, Iranian artist Ahmad Nadalian has etched thousands of stones with images of fish, crabs, faces, hands and feet which he then buries in the earth or tosses into bodies of water around the world. Thousands of stones, small and large.

Nadalian also carves cylinder seals and uses them in his worldwide quest to bring awareness to environmental issues. Cylinder seals are stone, glass or ceramic cylinders that were engraved with a story and used in ancient times to roll an impression of the images onto clay.

The hand-carved cylinder seals boast simple images of ocean and river life. The artist rolls these seals along the sandy beaches of the worlds oceans, often leaving the seal at the site of the sand print for the waters to wash away to another shore, in honor of the fisherman who might find it someday.

Sand Prints

I am inspired by the ancient examples of cylinder seals and consequently have made large examples adorned with my own carved designs. I then rolled these cylinder seals onto the surface of sand.  The results usually show a myriad harvest of living creatures adorning the beachfront or sand of the desert. 

My seals are diverse in terms of their shape, size and materials. Small seals can be printed on clay. I print my large cylinder seals along the sands of the beach and desert. The best photos can be taken in the early morning or the late afternoon, when the sun is at its lowest.

Sand Print in Desert

 

 

 

In the Shahdad desert I printed some of my fresh cylinder seals. Most of my previous seals had been printed on the sand of the beach. Here I enjoyed seeing a new texture.

In the middle of January 2009 I traveled to Hormoz Island. I used my bicycle and  realized my new environmental art project.  The tire of the bicycle bears an imprint of the phrase "Dream of Peace in the Persian Gulf" and anybody who rides the bicycle will cause the phrase to be engraved in the sands.
