Sorour Abdollahi is an immigrant artist working in East Vancouver with over 35 years of experience. The recent evolution of her art works deal with issues related to societal change as reflected in the urban environment. They serve as reflections of displacement and transformation of space, uses, people and personal memory as experienced by individuals and communities, depicted as fading and emerging landscapes. On one hand, these paintings reflect personal memory and internal landscape, where she draws upon her own experiences as an immigrant coping with change at a personal level. On the other hand, they also refer to wider transformations that happen in urban life globally, depicting the layering impact of cultural and spatial change through time. Her works can be found in private collections in Canada, USA, UK, France, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Iran and are also part of the art rental and sales program of the Associates of the Vancouver Art Gallery.
