Selected Works by Simin Keramati

Artist Statement

You are a bad girl

In this series I am portraying various images of ordinary girls in their unusual daily gestures, with heads cut out by the upper edge of the frame, or faces covered with hands wearing big rings and/or huge and glamorous sunglasses. In some of the art works you’ll find the girls turning their back to the audiences. The series You are a bad girl is criticizing the look of the society into the private life of a girl. At the time I was targeting the Middle Eastern look into the private lives of women. In all these paintings, I have been avoiding any kind of cliché for the outfit or the gesture of each of the girls/women, I have painted.
