Leila Seyedzadeh lives and works in New York City. She received a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from The University of Science and Culture in 2014 and an MFA from Yale University School of Art in 2019. Seyedzadeh was a recipient of the 2019 H. Lee Hirsche Dean’s merit prize. She has been invited to participate in numerous exhibitions which include shows at Dastan Galley in Tehran, Iran and Art Dubai 2019. Her work is represented in institutional exhibitions in the US and Iran which include Ahvaz Contemporary Art museum, Iran and Green Hall Gallery at Yale University. Seyedzadeh’s work addresses imaginary landscapes and focuses on natural subjects such as mountains that are extracted from the subconscious. It is as if she is attaching together pieces of her memories, and by doing so she is destroying their meaning, and thus creating a landscape that is immersed in placelessness.
