In 2013, Azadeh Hussaini completed her MFA at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. She completed her Undergraduate studies in 1999 receiving her BFA from the Painting Azad University in Iran. Her work has been displayed in exhibitions throughout the United States and Iran.
Her pursuit of Art Education and the experiences that shaped her journey as an immigrant visual artist has nurtured her artistic expression. Her work embodies the utilization of various mediums including painting, mixed-media and assemblages that incorporate the exploration of her own emotional responses to her experiences while congruently ascertaining the basic primordial desires within the human condition aspiring to discover commonalities among us while providing forums for open discussion and social assertiveness.
My thirst as an artist is to seek the similarities and common desires of human regardless of race, culture, gender or any other subcategories and utilize all the possibilities to establish a common visual conversation with viewers.
Over the years, my determination in art education in addition to my broad experience has nurtured my artistic creativity. As an immigrant visual artist, I have always demonstrated my concerns using variety of techniques as a respond to social assertiveness, focusing solely on structural visual elements, I have tried not to use the external signs of indigenous identity.
So far, this has been an exciting process since migration is mostly accompanied with emotional challenges and excitements. These challenges not only have developed the necessary expressive elements of my past emotional experiences, which have formed the structure for my work; but also has further advanced my understanding of human desires and conditions in general.
In my projects, I aim to demonstrate a shared language to enable my viewers to contemplate and examine details in a different ways that they have previously seen. The fundamental of this process is visualization. I use the power of visual elements as a communication tool to encourage an emotional expressive response.
Artists explore the seductive versatility and sculptural potential of the medium by cutting, folding, tearing, creasing, binding together, weaving, or otherwise transforming one of the oldest art materials, paper, to express ideas and emotions.
