Multimedia artist Eric Parnes considers his art to be “Neo-Orientalist,” meaning that which delves into the visual appropriation and socio-political dynamics between Eastern and Western culture. In a body of work that includes photography, sculpture, painting, installation, and video, Parnes draws equally from contemporary and historic references. Past projects have addressed pop culture, consumerism, corporate life, and violence, as well as the Persian Empire and ancient Mesopotamia. His works also build upon the artist’s experiences as an Iranian-American: “I do see the two worlds from both ends—from the East and from the West,” he says. “I can be found somewhere in there.”
