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.


Sparkling in her polyester dress, an angel face swimming in troubled waters , each night whispering come hither to men blinded by the light of her sex appeal…
C’mon good girl, be bad. The harrowing power of a delicious round but … the sillage your lover leaves behind when they depart is a heavenly thing. He offered me sugar and wanted to know all my secrets. These men were customers in a strip joint that I persuaded to pose in the costume of their favorite piece of eye candy in the club.
