This series is related to the restrictions placed on Iranian women - specifically through clothing- imposed after the Iranian revolution of 1979. I am using the strategy of painting, which employs projection and layering to discuss the complexities of cultural identity for women living in Iran today. My paintings represent a combination of traditional Persian patterns and the black - but transparent- chador (veil) to convey the colouful cultural identity that exists behind what women wear compulsorily. Paintings of this series have the capacity to emerge and fade simultaneously. They also speak of the complexities of being a young woman with respect to my cultural heritage, but also able to question the position of women in society. "Art is a weapon and culture is a way of resistance."
