FRESHLY CUT

Nabad Art Gallery presents an exhibition of paintings and photographs of flowers, in a wide variety of styles and media, entitled “Freshly Cut.” On display are watercolours, acrylics and oils on canvas, as well as a number of photographic works.

LIVING ON THE EDGE

Nabad opens an exhibition of paintings, sketches and sculptures by Iraqi Kurdish artist, Serwan Baran on Monday 24 June at 6:30 pm. Using vivid colours alongside his more sombre palette, the artist presents a series of emotionally-charged composite portraits, some marked by a hand ‘gesture’, representing a state of mind or a commentary on contemporary events. His exaggerated, tenuously-positioned figures,  highlighted by a monochromatic background, reflect an ironic humour and existential angst and disorientation.

PLAYFUL CONSTRUCTIONS

Nabad presents an exhibition of works by celebrated Lebanese artist, Hussein Madi. His third solo show at Nabad, this exhibition features paintings, collages and reliefs, as well as a number of giclèe prints, in which the artist’s pictorial vocabulary continues to display ironic playfulness in joyful, vibrant colours. These experiments in colour have produced a unique body of work that relates to the principles of divine harmony that inform the abstract designs of Islamic art.
