Featured Artist Wednesday - Ashkan Honarvar
In Rodeo Ashkan Honarvar has opted to use the typical American cowboy
and rodeo as symbols of the USA. One of America’s main agendas and
characteristics is its struggle to democratise countries in the Middle
East. What is democracy and is it the true form of freedom? Can a
rider tame a country? Or do outsiders disturb the development a
country needs to undergo itself?
The saying goes that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. It occurs
in places you least expect.
Revealing its art in the human body, but also cruelly absent in the
presence of deformations and scars.
Ashkan Honarvar (1980) depicts an undeniable, unavoidable beauty by
accepting the darker sides of human ‘nature’.
The body, torn by acts of war, exploited by the sex industry or used
as a tool for seeking identity, is
the focal point of his work.This constitutes a search for a universal
representation of the evil latent in every human,
providing an opportunity for reflection. His aesthetic dissection has
an intriguing macabre nature,
which opens the images to interpretation.
Honarvar’s almost empiric exploration of the human condition knows no
bounds. Its goal; the indefinable core.
