Artist Bio

Marissa Soroudi is a contemporary artist who lives and works in New York.

Her work reflects the convergence of her interests in female subjectivity and the human connection to nature, our deeper selves, and each other.

Soroudi’s process in creating a series of works consists of an immersive engagement and interaction with people across the world, a conscious exercise designed to deconstruct her own personal history.

She attempts to lessen the gap between her ego and the collective consciousness. Soroudi believes that testing her own boundaries and having a close connection with herself are both integral to her process.

The resultant work is a collection of experiences and experiments that take the shape of photographs, paintings, sculptures and videos that aim to express her understanding of the ‘other’, and through this a better understanding of humanity and of herself.

Soroudi’s process in creating a series of works consisted of an immersive engagement and interaction with different societies, a conscious exercise designed to deconstruct her own personal history.

She attempts through this to lessen the gaps between both her ego and the collective consciousness, as well as the complexity of the human mind and the simplicity of biological truths.

The resultant work is a collection of experiences and experiments that take the shape of photographs, paintings, sculptures and videos that aim to capture the essence of her encounters and communicate to the viewer as a better understanding of the ‘other’, and through this a better understanding of humanity and of self.
