Satellite Dishes – Iranian Artwork

Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi 2Thesesmall-detail-knok-knok paintings by Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi focus on the occurrences of state imposed restrictions and the proliferation of satellite dishes in Iran as discussed in this week’s Six Pillars to Persia broadcast with Small Media (next on air Sunday Dec 16th 20.30 GMT).  Javanshir Ilchi often uses elements of Persian miniature and the art of Illumination in her work, as well as strong social and personal statements. The bottomost picture here shows the traditional walled garden surrounding an Iranian home and dish.
