Iqi Qoror's surreal figurative paintings are arresting in their earthy palettes offset by pops of fluorescent textile embroidery. His artworks revolve around questions of trust, interspersed with fragments of modernity set against his own social experience. Qoror's blend of portraiture, pop-textiles, and surrealistic imagery invokes curiosity, confusion, and a playfully honest connection with our contemporary world. Each artwork represents a point of self reflection: "We live in a catastrophic world...I express my response through my works and I'm constructing a question of our madness."
