Parnes' artistic work explores what he calls neo-orientalism, a reexamination of Orientalism. When asked in Adweek magazine about the Orient Parnes stated that "he does not condemn nor support such change as commonly perceived...[y]ou really do see men in dishdashas smoking and wearing Nike sneakers...and they’re probably wearing Versace underwear beneath it all. He seeks to redefine orientalism (depiction of the Middle Eastern and the West). Parnes has legally registered the term neo-orientalist as a Trademark.


In January 2014, the Ayyam Gallery premiered at their DIFC location in Dubai an exhibition of Eric Parnes' photographs of the remaining interiors of the Former Embassy of Iran in Washington, D.C. The building has been "long and abandoned", and still is, shuttered and inaccessible in over three decades since its closure circa 1979-1980 with the Iranian Revolution and the resulting severance of dialogue with the United States due to the Iran Hostage Crisis . Parnes' imagery showcases the remaining visual legacy of the Embassy, renowned for its active social presence in the 1960s and 1970s as an immensely popular party destination in Washington, D.C. under the leadership of then-Ambassador Ardeshir Zahedi, who was interviewed during the exhibition about Parnes stating “We have had a long friendship,” he said. “Iran and the U.S., they need each other. They may be friends; they must be friends.”. Frequent political and celebrity guests included Barbra Streisand, Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, Sen. Edward "Ted" Kennedy, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and Andy Warhol.Barbara Walters wrote: "The number one embassy when it came to extravagance and just plain enjoyment was the Iranian Embassy." Parnes' stylized photographs, on the other hand, now show an empty, dark building yet that still holds remarkably preserved elements of elaborate Persian mosaics and mirrored rooms amidst the general decay.

Curated by David Elliott, the 2014 edition of the Moscow Biennale for Young Art, at the MMOMA, a massive red neon sign using words from Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream" speech and intertwined with the 1989 Hollywood movie Dream a Little Dream was installed.


In 2012, The Galleries, Katara Cultural Village, West Bay, Doha and The Pearl, Qatar invited Parnes to create an installation for the I Dream of Jeannie: I See Demons exhibition. Through mediums including sculpture, photography and paintings, Parnes reintroduces the subtle Middle Eastern origins of I Dream of Jeannie, the American television situation comedy. The name of the television program is a play on the French word "genie", derived from the Arabic word Jinn (a supernatural being). The Jinn, mentioned in the Quran, is identified with mischief-making and trouble-doing. A Persian translation of I Dream of Jeannie is "I See Demons."
