"The title gives a great starting insight into what is going on here, but I soon found that it only scratched the surface.

I may have found the core imagery of the painting a little heavy handed, if I was not almost immediately drawn to the windows in the background of the painting that seem to point to a much deeper background and nuanced story than would otherwise be the case." David Willson

Pegah Samaie is an American-Iranian artist who was born and grew up in Tehran, Iran. Pegah’s art moves through the shadow of her past life. She uses art as a tool to face the experiences she and other women have encountered in a culture dominated by patriarchal governments and households. Her early experiences in Iran changed her perception of the role of women in society; they motivated her and influenced her way of talking about women. Art is her voice to talk about her feelings and experiences.    

Pegah studied drawing and painting under the guidance of master Iranian artists. She received her BFA with honors from the prestigious Laguna College of Art and Design in Laguna Beach, CA, where she is now also completing her Master of Fine Art degree. More on Pegah Samaie
