In documenting contemporary Iranian society, Morshedloo considers his role as an artist as a tremendous responsibility and he approaches his paintings with both humility and criticality. Central to his practice is the notion of the subjectivity of the artist’s vision. In Untitled his use of a variety of painterly styles insinuates both the public attitude towards and the personal consciousness of his subjects, with the man realistically represented in the centre, surrounded by women in various states of dissolve. Morshedloo articulates their faces with astonishing faithfulness giving each figure a sense of individual strength and dignity.
