Asad Faulwell’s sumptuous new paintings are a collision of magic and politics. The extravagant vignettes contain ancient mythology and its omnipresent cultural effect. Minuscule details leave a trail of clues throughout the paintings as to their storied and bloodied histories. The contorted figures represent the archetype of Iranian, Kings, Queens, and Magi­— once considered supernatural. Asad’s complex relationship with identity is reflected in the intricacies of his visual story telling.
