Heidi Hahn’s spectral figurative paintings are visually and psychologically layered. Her intuitive and dynamic process leads to gestural and fluid paintings, often of the female body, infused with emotional undertones. With a critical nod at art historical traditions of reclining nudes, Hahn’s work is in dialogue with past and present perspectives on gender, and the ambiguities of identity.

Hahn’s works are part of renowned museum collections such as the Dallas Museum of Art, Moderna Museet Stockholm, High Museum of Art in Atlanta, New Orleans Museum of Art, Kadist Foundation Paris, New Century Art Foundation Shanghai, Philara Collection or Saastamoinen Foundation Art Collection, Helsinki. Her work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the world, including the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, KS; LSU Museums L.A; High Art Museums Atlanta; New Orleans Museum of Art, and Premier Regard, Paris, France (2013). 

Hahn received a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from Cooper Union in 2006, and a Master’s degree from Yale University in 2014. She has been awarded residencies at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, and the Headlands Center for the Arts, among others.
