Giant Robot, LA: Susie Ghahremani (08.16 - 09.17)

Giant Robot, LA: Susie Ghahremani

the artist's fifth solo show will feature an extensive collection of over 100 never-before-seen miniature paintings surrounded by a hand-crafted aerial installation. The three-dimensional aspect of the gallery installation will allow visitors to physically experience the world she creates in her paintings for the first time. In this show the subjects of Ghahremani's animal world take on human qualities finding visible comfort in the homes they have built.
The "home life" of a variety of species will be depicted in the collection, including a wide range of dogs, birds and her renowned owls. The theme of this exhibit is heavily inspired by Ghahremani's personal experience volunteering as a wildlife rehabilitator in San Diego, CA. The exhibition is largely composed of gouache paintings on wood tile and wood blocks.  Her work reflects her signature craft-inspired sensibility with dotted lines that mimic stitching and backgrounds that evoke textiles and quilting.
