In this “Garden of Eden” series, Edalatkhah critiques the American Dream, by revisiting
his childhood doodles in an attempt to search for purity and innocence. Combining those
postulant images from his past with vulgar depictions of sexuality, he references the
Safavid Empire and the Qajar Dynasty. The sexually explicit angels represent the simple
desire of satiation, and the artificial flowers in saturated colors represent his perception of
a distorted American beauty.
“The void in my angels shows how pure human mind and soul can be, and at the same
time, ready to be filled with anything, or any ideology it comes in contact with”.
The phallic obsession in Hossein’s works serves as a critique of the means of
representation and meaning-construction of it’s object of criticism. His unique portrayal
of queer symbols, Feminism, gender roles, and his objection to male dominance in
society can be found throughout his paintings. Blurring the lines of representation and
abstraction, his use of artificial realism captures romance in his modern and emotional
take on cubism. He is not only exploring gender and ambiguity, but also depicting his
response to being submerged in a new culture as an immigrant.
