Leila Seyedzadeh

The works of Leila Seyedzadeh (b. 1986, Tehran) serve as tapestries woven from fragments of memories, evoking a sense of placelessness. Through 2D works and 3D installations, Leila blurs geographical boundaries, inviting viewers on a journey of introspection. Influenced by traditional Persian miniature paintings, her practice has evolved from mimetic landscapes to abstract interpretations.

Leila’s artistic journey began with a study of painting and drawing, leading her to explore imaginary landscapes. The rugged beauty of the Alborz Mountains in Tehran provided her with a sanctuary from urban chaos, igniting her passion for depicting landscapes. Each stroke became an homage to the tranquility and stability the mountains represented in her life.

The work of Leila Seyedzadeh stems from exploring imaginary landscapes drawn from her subconscious, focusing on natural elements like mountains and rivers. Her recent installations, resembling suspended mountains crafted from hand-dyed fabrics, transport viewers to her sanctuary over 6000 miles away, bridging past and present.
