This event has ended.

Priska C. Juschka Fine Art presents new paintings by Iranian born artist Nicky Nodjoumi. By speaking literally and figuratively of two worlds simultaneously, the Western Hemisphere and the Middle East, Nodjoumi evokes individual dialogues against a continuous backdrop of ambiguity, allegory and irony.

Nodjoumi creates large scale oil paintings using a visual narrative that combines Persian metaphors and Iranian iconography with references of Western and foremost American culture and politics. The inherent symbolism of Mullahs and Ayatollahs juxtaposed with that of suit clad Western bureaucrats suggests an extremely delicate balance between and beyond all cultural and sociopolitical boundaries. On his canvases, the struggle against tyranny and domination, both personal and universal, unfolds seemingly in front of the viewer's eye. Nodjoumi directs a staged scenario, full with connotations, revealing the hypocrisy within our societies - whether in form of ideological or physical exploitation, male supremacy or sexual repression.
