Venus series Etemad Gallery 2012


Venus series Behind the calm and poised surface of his paintings one can see and hear the silent screams of all the girls and women who for centuries have suffered repression under the heavy hands of our extreme patriarchal societies.

Whether this suppression comes from the outside or the sad self-censorship within, Derakhshandeh beautifully illustrates the pain with which these women live through, day in, day out.
