Perhaps there is no other phrase that is a summation of the development of current American culture than “Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll.” In Parnes’ art piece, it has transformed itself from a definition of Western depravity to the seemingly mundane, yet in the East, its context still retains its underlying meaning. Here, being written in Farsi, the words automatically create a sudden dichotomy. Aesthetically pleasing to the eye, the artist’s work also underlines the subtle cultural clash taking place in present times.
