Shiva Ahmadi in The Body Politic
Professor Shiva Ahmadi’s recent paintings are on view online in “The Body Politic” at the Haines Gallery in San Francisco. In these works, Ahmadi mines the expressive potential of paint while exploring the body’s relationship to trauma and anxiety. Ahmadi’s recent works are introspective, intimate, and personal. Charged with emotion, these latest paintings illuminate a different kind of stress, one borne from a heightened awareness of the body, its susceptibilities and vulnerabilities, and the self-consciousness that arises from constant scrutiny.
