Nikoo Tarkhani

Nikoo Tarkhani is an Iranian artist.  She writes:

” My women have no criteria of womanhood. They’re bald and, although they’re naked, the feminine organs do not exist. These figures are fading and tearing apart. The look of sorrow and passivity in their faces implies an acceptance of their fate. They don’t belong to any time or any place and still they’re so familiar. The mixture of “Surrealism,” “Expressionism,” and figurative styles in these paintings is not something conscious; however, these paintings still have the accent on contemporary art. I believe that “postmodernism” in spite of its imperfections is the best way to express the feelings and emotions of today’s human beings.”
