Her paintings are evidently modern and this fact has made her art different from others of her generation.
Setareh says: “human is the main focus of my art; the one who lives in no time and no space. The important thing for me is the identity of human and his sufferings in a non-shaped atmosphere. For I am willing to picture human in a no-time and no-space circumstance, I picture him lonely in a place where you cannot find any signs of life.”
