The rose and the thorn, and sorrow and gladness are linked together. -Saadi Shirazi
With their group exhibition “Facets of Iran,” artists Jon John Arias, Mike Marlowe, & Paul King ask:
“Can we meet others as people and not projections of our romantic notions or our worst nightmares?”
“Facets of Iran” reflects the experiences of three people with distinct impressions of a shared place and time.
Utilizing their combined tools of photography, film-making, anthropology, and material art, their work represents glimpses into the richness and diversity of Iranian people and their environment.
Jon John Arias, Mike Marlowe, & Paul King have stepped away from the de-humanizing geopolitical headlines to present a Western audience with more nuanced and intimate perspectives of the Iranian people.
