Jason Noushin
Captain America

2017

About

"Captain America" by Jason Noushin is exemplary of the Anglo-Iranian's approach to his artwork, including his study of this particular female figure, the use of collage and the bridging of Iranian and Western cultures. The painting features the silhouette of a seated woman at its center and main focal point. This female figure appears in many of the artist's works, based on a woman he saw in a painting that has captured his attention ever since. This is one of Noushin's bolder mixed media works, with collaged comic book clippings filling the outlines of the figure, drawing the viewer into a narrative of heroism and superheros. The bright reds and blues in the comic are complimented by a border of blue stars and red Persian calligraphy that fills the rest of the canvas. The artist often uses Persian calligraphy in his paintings, writing out transliterations of english poems or stories. The calligraphy is a translation of sound rather than words, forming a sort of code from two different cultures.
