I focus on recent Iranian history, exploring it through text, figurative works and abstraction, often drawing on the grid format of newspapers as a source of inspiration. I delve specifically into a heady and turbulent time in my birth countrys past - the 1979 revolution, a populist and nationalist movement consisting of Marxists, Islamic socialists, secularists and Shia Islamists. These diverse groups united to overthrow the monarchy but instead of a democracy ushered in an Islamic fundamentalist-led theocracy under Ruhollah Khomeini.
