ADVOCARTSY is proud to present Embodied Mythologies, a solo exhibition of works by Iranian born woman artist, Samira Abbassy, with a public opening reception on Thursday May 11, 2023 from 7-9pm at ADVOCARTSY’s West Hollywood gallery located at 434 North La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048. In this exhibition, Abbassy’s work grapples with the psychological and metaphysical aspects of selfhood, in which her figures are allegories representing the depths of our subconscious. Leaving Iran as a small child to live in London, Abbassy’s work acts as a bridge between the dichotomy of cultures, both fusing and exploring disparate entities to create an aesthetic synthesis rooted in her own identity. This collection of drawings and paintings creates a surreal realm of figures which allude to the history of proto-Renaissance religious icons, and ancient manuscripts of the Middle East.
