The delicate mixed-media compositions of Iranian-born artist Shahram Karimi (born 1957) grapple with the dislocation and homesickness of Iranian refugees. Karimi's canvases combine floral motifs and his own Farsi poetry with the expressionless faces of the displaced. Karimi has for years worked as Shirin Neshat's key production designer for films, and the book includes essays by Neshat and curator Dan Cameron.
