Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi Hosts Art Opening
Of Shiva Pakdel’s Work
On Friday March 17, 2006, Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi hosts the monthly Third Friday’s Art Reception in his City Hall office, Room 282. In honor of International Women’s Day and the Norouz (Persian New Year) celebration taking place on March 20, this month’s featured artist is Shiva Pakdel.
For Shiva Pakdel, her upbringing in Abadan Iran combined the modern, Western lifestyle of one of Iran’s most liberal cities along with the rich history and traditions of her land. Her continued enthusiasm and interest in art over the past 25 years has combined her love of art, culture, and history from both the East and West.
Shiva Pakdel combines a broad range of mediums including oils, acrylics, paper, beads, collage, and prints. Some of her works include collages of mid 19th and 20th century antique stamps from Iran, a personal series of images, poetry, photographs and portraits entitled “Iran On My Mind”, and a series of oil and acrylic faces painted on wood. By combining historical elements and placing them in a contemporary format, her work is a beautiful blend of modern pieces with traditional influences.
Her works can be viewed online at http://www.shivapakdel.com
