The nightmarish images of Ali Reza Jodai, perhaps act as a magnifier of the events of the past few months in Iran. “Shock & Awe” can overwhelm the viewer. The preoccupation of the artist with society and events is vivid and the rich lines are evidence of a keen awareness of the historical tradition of Persian Painting. The refined paintings of Ali Reza Jodai are perhaps a Hall of Mirror, A peep show, A circus, the limbo dance of characters in the theater of life.
