Smoky Mountain

Acrylic on wood, 2013-2015, 48”w x 48”h x 0.2”d

I use the trapezoid, an abstracted shape of a mountain, to represent memories of long-lasting road trips through the deserts and forests of Iran. In the Virus series, I paint the trapezoid as an entity becoming invaded by an undying viral force and reaching immunity through this process. Smoky Mountain is about the process of reaching immunity.
