Artist Bio

Marissa Soroudi is a Persian/American contemporary artist who lives and works in New York City.

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

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 and cultural 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.
