We remember Amir-Hossein Zanjani mostly by his bold use of colors. Representing a new content that is different from the indexical nature of photography, “Shoes” from “Array” series is a follow up to Zanjani’s “Militarism” series, in which the artist has used quick brushstrokes and running color stains. Here, form is eliminated and painting has become abstract. Placing his military figures in the foreground and burying the background in color, Zanjani has made it exceedingly difficult for the viewer to speculate about the narrative of the image.
