Rokni Haerizadeh
Iranian, b. 1978
Follow

Rokni Haerizadeh creates mixed-media collages and paintings that both emphasize and criticize the inconsistencies in Iranian culture. His work centers on the fundamental tensions between traditional customs and gender roles and the rise of Western influence. Haerizadeh often appropriates media imagery, as in Who Sank All Night in a Submarine Light (2010), where a still image of a televised protest is printed repeatedly onto the canvas in a comment on government abuse and civil unrest. His eclectic influences include Iranian history, Freudian dream interpretation, traditional Persian literature, and pop culture.
