Catalogue for the exhibition, "Ahmed Alsoudani: Redacted" on view at Phoenix Art Museum, March 13, 2013 - July 7, 2013. Iraqi-American painter Ahmed Alsoudani is known for his vibrant, large-scale fragmented compositions that combine charcoal drawing with acrylic paint to articulate the artist’s compelling vocabulary of violence and its repercussions. His work is rooted in his turbulent personal experiences but speaks to something larger. Look closely and we find no traces of culture or society. The anonymity of his images highlights the universality of his issues. At turns dark and funny, his painting is a powerful testament to his desire to create eloquent artworks that ask vital questions about our place in the world amid ever changing international circumstances.
