British-Iranian artist Kour Pour elaborates large-scale paintings of Persian rugs by juxtaposing, with different techniques, sets of imagery, iconic motifs and religious symbols from different locations, traditions, time periods. In his work, Pour explores the way we collect information in the present day: exploiting Google Images and clip-arts CD-ROMS, he re-contextualizes the images onto the canvas which act as nets.
