Iranian American artist and cardiologist Nazanin Moghbeli presents her latest body of work, Rupture that pays reverence to the intersection of the complex meaning of lines and forms that flow when our bodies are whole, and rupture when our bodies are broken.  Lines of words, calligraphy, and blood flow all mirror each other in the worlds that Mogbheli straddles, influenced by her background in art and medicine and her cultural heritage.
