Any form of art is a form of power; it has impact, it can affect change – it can not only move us, it makes us move. - Ossie Davis

Contemporary Iraqi-American artist, Vian Sora explores themes of chaos and regeneration throughout her solo show called Subduction. Using convergent subduction zones as a metaphor for the unstable nature of her home country, Sora speaks to the ways society is capable of colliding and rebuilding - just as the earth recycles after colliding. Her work features intentional color contrasts, abstract landscapes, and androgynous figures to talk about themes of life and decay, as well as her own identity. Visit her show at Luis De Jesus Los Angeles before it ends July 16, 2022 or virtually through the gallery website .
