Thank you!
Soody Sharifii is an Iranian/American artist based in Houston. Her work primarily deals with the paradoxes and contradictions inherent in living between two cultures. In many of her series, she has explored the notion of identity and what it means to participate in two cultures from both an outsider’s and an insider’s perspective. Through different series, she investigates this concept as it applies to Moslem youth in Iran and US and their emerging concept of self-identity specifically how they accommodate modernity and the indulgences and exploration specific to youth within a very traditional society.

  2. 2. Photographer Soody Sharifi (born 1955), Iranian by origin and a mechanical engineer by education, haslived in the United States for over thirty years. Her work is concerned with the theme of the penetration ofMuslim society by imported Western influences, as well as the natural evolution of that society over time.She has consistently followed issues of identity and its gender aspects, which are ever more poignant andrelevant in the context of Islam today.
  3. 3. Soody Sharifi is an Iranian/Americanartist based in Houston. Her workprimarily deals with the paradoxesand contradictions inherent in livingbetween two cultures. In many of herseries, she has explored the notionof identity and what it means toparticipate in two cultures from bothan outsider’s and an insider’sperspective.Through different series, sheinvestigates this concept as itapplies to Moslem youth in Iran andUS and their emerging concept ofself-identity specifically how theyaccommodate modernity and theindulgences and exploration specificto youth within a very traditionalsociety.Soody Sharifi has been exhibited nationally and internationally since 2004 and has been collected by Museumof fine arts Houston and Portland.

  16. 16. photographic montages by Iranian artist Soody SharifiSharifi’s most recent series, The Desert beyond the City Belongs to Me, provides an interesting counterpoint to her previousMaxiture series. In Maxitures, Sharifi inserted issues from contemporary culture into traditional miniature paintings by way ofphotographic collage. By inserting contemporary details into historical fiction, Sharifi creates new stories that depict everydayIranian life and highlight the conflict between old and new values. In her new series, The Desert beyond the City Belongs to Me,her use of miniature figures is consistent, but the site of interaction between the contemporary and the historic has beenreconsidered. Instead of bringing the contemporary into 15th-century representations, she imports miniature figures intophotographs of contemporary Iran and interrogates the modern surroundings
