Shopping in the Middle East: New Work by Eric Robert Parnes
McDonalds by Eric Robert Parnes
acrylic on canvas, 10" x 13"
Eric Parnes is an Iranian-American artist that incorporates the question of identity into all of his works. Here Parnes has chosen the subject of Western commercialism and it's potential influence and introduction into the East. Parnes uses the most recognizable icon juxtaposed to a minaret, much like a contemporary cityscape with towering financial buildings looming over church steeples.
Still Life Gallery is pleased to exhibit this provocative new painting by Eric Robert Parnes
