One Million Signature Campaign to Change the Women's Gender Based Apartheid Civil Rights in Iran
The title of this work from my "Freedom" series is One Million Signature Campaign to Change Women's Civil Rights in Iran, 2007-2016 - installation shot - two-sided artwork - mixed media prints of women who have been imprisoned for this cause. Among them are lawyers, poets, writers, filmmakers, artists, college students, etc. Hand-dyed canvas with several layers of sheer fabrics and handwritten signatures collecting around 500,000 so far which are imbedded in many of my work. The painting to the right is entitled: Twin Towers in memory of the people who lost their lives during the terrorist attack on the twin towers. Painting to the left is entitled: Adel Abad Prison, Shiraz where my 82 years-old uncle and my 32 years-old cousin were executed.
