NOTHING IS NORMAL!
In the “Nothing is Normal” series of oil and acrylic paintings, I represent the daily life of
the young Iranian generation - people who on the surface appear calm and at ease and
who attempt to lead regular lives. However, even everyday activities which you and I in
the West would take for granted can pose a serious risk to young Iranians. Socializing
with friends, attending parties, surfing the internet, going for a walk, uploading photographs – they are in a state of constant battle, day and night.
Iranians are currently struggling to regain their rights. The murder of Mahsa Jina Amini
is just one of the many, many unjustified murders which they are fighting against.
Women in particular are in a constant battle for the right to choose how they appear
in public, how they behave, and what they do. These struggles are what make up the
movement which demands freedom and enfranchisement for all, and which will eventually enable people to reclaim the political process.
