“Alienation” is Sameh Khalatbari’s response to a decade spent in Silicon Valley. In contrast to her politically-driven abstract multi-media series “1401 N/m² Resistance” (2023), a reflection on the Iranian women’s movement, “Alienation” focuses on the interpersonal dynamics of social disruption via technology in the western world. Each painting in her new series depicts a woman like herself, portrayed in shades of gray, donning a mask evocative of the face of an animal, but rendered with origami folds that betray their artifice. “In the virtual sphere,” Khalatbari says, “our digital selves transcend reality, concealed behind layers of deceit and masks that obscure our true essence.”
