COSMOS Exhibition at Light Grey Art Lab

November 10th, 2015

I’m currently in the “COSMOS” exhibition at Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis, MN! Light Grey Art Lab COSMOS brought together 100 international artists to contribute a symbolic depiction of one of the constellations or nearby astral bodies. The works are all LED lit so the show is really something you need to see in person — if you’re in the area, please check it out!

Susie Ghahremani "Jupiter" for Light Grey Art Lab

I created this painting to represent Jupiter (both with Jupiter’s Greek archetypal symbols — the eagle and the oak — as well as the traditional representation of all 67 moons in its fierce gravitational pull). This art is meant to represent might and power!

You can see the entire show online at lightgreyartlab.com. The show opened on October 30 and runs through November 22.

Cosmos Tarot Oracle Deck

In conjunction with this show, Light Grey Art Lab launched the limited edition COSMOS Tarot & Oracle Deck. This boxed-set includes every piece of artwork from the COSMOS Exhibition, including mine! Thanks to Lindsey Nohl, Jenny Bookler, and everyone who made this amazing show possible.
