Hadieh Afshani

Born in 1982, Tehran, Iran

Hadieh Afshani has lived in Australia for 10 years before finally moving to the United States. Her paintings are mostly focused on two main topics: women/gender issues and the connection to land. In “The Intimate Experience of Life and Death,” a woman faces her sexual experience with a focus on maximum of joy and happiness, coupled with the depression of a loss. These works depict conflicting feelings and consequences around female sexuality. Afshani discovers her experience and emotions through metaphoric/poetic paintings and drawings of her nest/living place, such as her bedrooms and her living rooms with and without human figures.
