Orkideh Torabi: 'Give them all they want'

Exploring Issues of Patriarchy

Give them all they want refers to men: the subject and objects of Orkideh Torabi's gaze. Her colorful paintings, created by screening fabric dye onto cotton, explore issues of patriarchy, infusing this loaded topic with a wry sense of humor.

Her paintings depict Iranian men in domestic and nature settings where their portrayals are surprisingly intimate and vulnerable.
