Roberts Projects is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition of mixed media paintings and works on paper by Iranian American artist Ardeshir Tabrizi. Tabrizi’s hand-embroidered textile pieces address the intersection of cultural renewal and historical understanding of heritage in contemporary society. This new body of work is a personal journey in search of the artist’s own nationalistic identity, while understanding the role of these physical places in the cultural, geographic and political landscape of today. Taking inspiration from oral history, mythology, literature, and his family’s travels, Tabrizi’s work resonates with his own personal discovery and reconnection with the changing social landscape of Iran at home in Los Angeles.
