I create paintings that respond to the objectification of women in Iran for religious and cultural purposes. My work is driven by personal experience as an Iranian-American woman with a multicultural background. These works, at their core, use the semiotics of religion and culture to discuss gender equality and conflicts of the modern era. I investigate these ideas by incorporating religious artifacts such as Hejab in my work.
