Daryoush Asgar’s protagonists obey the imperative “You can be anything you want”. They manifest the pleasure of self-projection, but meanwhile the social pressure of constantly having to redefine oneself. They thus move between ecstasy and nightmare, finding and losing themselves in the same instant. Their lack of identity is reflected in the generative process creating the pictures. The subjects do not have a real-life model, they are entities composed of clichés; they are models borrowed from popular haute couture, as representative of our contemporary consumer society. When transposing them into paint, the artist likewise expresses the blurring of borderlines between reality and appearance by employing a photo-realist rendering pervaded with a slight fuzziness.
