Reza Saleh

I am an Iranian-American artist based in California. My work is the translation of ancient arts from around the globe and expressed in the contemporary world.


It has always been attractive to me to realized the ancient art in modern context.


When we do actually look, we find that the ancient arts were often grappling with subjects that we still wrestle with today.

If there is one thing that speaks to the enduring importance of ancient art, it is that it always allows for other ways of looking.


My art is a dynamic combination of materials, methods, concepts, and subjects that continue the challenging of boundaries.

It is part of a cultural dialogue that concerns larger contextual frameworks such as personal and cultural identity, family, community, and nationality.


In my artworks, objects are analyzed, broken up and reassembled in an abstracted form instead of depicting objects from a single viewpoint, I depict the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context.
