Artist: Soroush T. Moghim
Exhibition: Geometry of grief
Gallery: Max L. Gatov Gallery East
This weeks Artist talk i did mine on Soroush Moghim, he is fourth year student at Long Beach majoring in sculpture. He is originally from Iran and works at a rug store where he gets some of his inspartion for his pieces. I really enjoyed his crystal violin piece, the background had all these nice colors with a sort of kaleidoscope effect with the crystal clear violin hanging and rotating slowly in front. There was also very mellow music playing which gave me a very warm and peaceful sensation but ironically enough was called the Geometry of Grief. This peace was inspired by the recent passing of his mother and he said that the shadow casted by the violin was representative of the empty feeling left by the passing of his mother. This was a very beautiful and emotional piece.
