Farnaz Zabetian paints women from the part of the world she comes from: Tehran, Iran. She says, "These women struggle with social taboos, so much so that she will not know how to act without them. An Eastern woman is always in a struggle to display a strong and stable woman or a mother, all of which has been predetermined for her. An Eastern woman will put up with the erosion of her soul so her fragility will not be apparent. She puts up a strong front. My paintings depict the women who have silently pulled off these masks to bare all of their complexities, hurts, and untold secrets."
