Nabad Art Gallery: 'Earth' by Mohammad Al Shammarey

“Great disasters no longer cause me as much pain as small sorrows. We have become familiar with death–it has been domesticated–but noble grief still finds its way into my soul. Grief for the loss of what makes life worth living on this earth: grass growing on stone, sunshine in a prison, a woman leaving her forties in splendor.” – Mohammed al Shammarey

Women, Birds & Pomegranates by Hussein Madi

“You know, there is always one corner in the artist’s mind, one unchanging core of logic from which he views and deals with his art. Each object in nature, whether a bird, person, or tree, contains its own specific unchanging inner structure. In conceiving my art, I am driven by one basic logic, namely, preserving this inner structure: its elements can change in scale, position, form and color, but it keeps repeating itself and never loses its identity.” – Hussein Madi

The exhibition will be opened under the patronage of HRH Princess Ghida Talal in the presence of the artist.

Nabad Gallery: Conversation

An exhibition of works by artist Rania Kamal at 6:30 pm on Tuesday 26 June 2018, in the presence of the artist. Originally Palestinian, Rania Kamal was born in Surrey, UK and was raised between London, Beirut and Kuwait, eventually returning to the British capital in 1982 to complete her secondary schooling. In 1989, Kamal graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Film and Broadcasting from Boston University, choosing film for its embrace of all creative processes including composition of shots, music, writing, lighting and sound. Among those which have inspired Kamal are the Dadaists, Jackson Pollock, Simone de Beauvoir, Andy Warhol and David Hockney. Following her graduation, Kamal returned to London and worked at WTN (now Reuters), and went to MBC on loan from WTN. After four years at Reuters, she relocated to Singapore and then settled in Dubai 1996, where she is currently based. At various intervals in the 1990s, Kamal worked on various sets of Miramax movies. In 1998, she started formally painting, beginning with large, abstract colourful canvases, and eventually gravitating towards black and white.

For her first solo exhibition, Kamal presents “Conversation,” a result of a 35-day experiment during which she challenged modes of expression and liberty in a dialogue format with herself. Works in this series tackle notions of humanity and truth and are rendered in gesso, resin and coloured pigments.
