Rusul Emad

Region: West


City / State: Scottsdale , AZ

 Guided by her old soul and humbly following in the footsteps of classical Surrealist masters of the 1920s such as Remedios Varo and Leonora Carrington, Rusul Emad produces work that is both expressive and emotional. Her emphasis on storytelling via the vivid expression of dreams is central to her work, which focuses on symbolism that shows the struggle of life, hope, success, and failure.

Rusul’s work holds a mirror to the emotions through various imagined characters that can be humans, mammals, or insects, along with other objects that often come to us in dreams. Her symbolism creates a magical environment that challenges the viewer to use their imagination to interpret each painting for themselves.

Rusul appreciates antiquity in all forms and frequently merges Eastern and Western cultural concepts and mythologies, often using this as a bridge to her dreamscapes.
