You Can Hit Me a Thousand Times

About

"You Can Hit Me a Thousand Times" is a mixed media painting by British-Iranian artist Jason Noushin. It depicts a seated female figure with her legs crossed in front of her and her head turned to the side. This composition is a recurring image in Noushin's work, and each piece shows a different interpretation of this woman. In this particular painting, the artist has chosen to fill the contours of the figure with collaged comic book leaves. A red-lipped, toothy smile on a blue background is strategically placed where the woman's mouth would be, with Captain America's eyes hovering above. This collaging adds a contemporary humor to the piece. Noushin incorporates Persian calligraphy in this painting, as well as many of his other paintings and sculptures. Farsi transliterations of the collaged comic book are inked down the figure. The calligraphy serves a pleasing visual break from the busy and brightly colored comic book illustrations. Symbolically, the use of farsi in the artist's works connects his relationship with Iranian and Western cultures.
