Live from the Studio with Shoora Majedian
April 03, 2022
Join Griffin’s artist-in-residence Shoora Majedian to learn more about what she has been up to throughout her time at Griffin Art Projects!
Shoora Majedian received her MFA at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. She received a Post-bacc in Painting and Drawing from SAIC in Chicago and MA from Tehran University. Shoora has participated in national and international exhibitions in Tehran, Chicago, Toronto, and Vancouver.
Her painting research explores different references, such as memory for representation. Her individual and collective narratives examine the possibilities of metaphor in image-making. What drives her painting ideas are the interaction between figure, space, and objects. Testing haptic visuality with different ways of mark-making, color combinations and painting surfaces are alongside investigations in each image. Her current research explores the relationship between ordinary moments and the sociopolitical matters behind them.
