Shiva Ahmadi’s Solo Exhibition “Burning Song” in San Francisco

Shiva Ahmadi new solo exhibition ”Burning Song” at the Haines Gallery in San Francisco features a new body of work that is at once humorous, scathing, and heartbreaking. 

Working across a variety of media that includes painting, digital animation, and sculpture, Ahmadi addresses the machinations of despotic regimes (and the complicity of their drone-like followers), the horrors of war, and their effects on innocent lives — using beauty to seduce the viewer into her exquisitely crafted scenes.  These works are exhibited in dialogue with new sculptures from Ahmadi’s Pressure Cooker series, first begun in 2016.

“Burning Song” runs from September 6 to October 27, 2018.
Opening reception: Thursday, September 6, 5:30-7:30 pm
