Laleh Bagherzadi, whose artwork is being displayed at STCCC from July 29 – August 31 in a solo exhibition entitled “Unique yet Identical”, will be at the center painting today.
Laleh described the inspiration for the pieces she selected for this showing.
“Imagine a place where background and prejudice do not come into play. The main message of the show is presenting a wide variety of people that are unique in their personalities, yet identical by all being women. The inspiration for my work derives from my own personal experience regarding my ethnicity. Throughout my life I have not been able to truly discern where I believe I have come from, resulting in challenges with my identity. Thus I hope from this show you are able to gather that these women would rather be asked about their respective personalities, as opposed to where they come from”.
