Born in 1982, Tehran, Ala Dehghan makes use of images, objects, and everyday materials that she then fragments and blends together in mixed-media works. These consist of layers of painting and collage mainly on paper or acetate. This process of destroying and reconstructing the images and symbols of contemporary social and cultural dynamics, of the place in which she lives and the culture she comes from, is a continuous reflection on femininity, a philosophical meditation on loss and transformation.
