Nabad Art Gallery presents an exhibition of works by established Jordanian painter and architect, Ammar Khammash. These recent works represent the artist's continuing venture into new territories. During the past few years, Khammash worked along numerous lines simultaneously. A rich body of paintings includes the subject of figures, which is rare for an artist established in landscape painting. The work exhibited explores the human body through the eye of a landscape artist and shares the results in watercolours, drawings, large paintings and stone sculptures. At the same time, the artist has been working on a collection of watercolour landscapes that address the line between realism and abstraction.

Born in 1960 in Amman, Ammar Khammash is a multi-talented Jordanian who has made his mark in several disciplines. In addition to being an established painter, having held twenty solo and participated in over twenty group exhibitions since 1978, Khammash is one of Jordan's foremost architects, known especially for his extensive work in the field of historical preservation. His contributions in the areas of the environment and community development can be seen in several projects across Jordan. His interest in photography, coupled with an interest in Jordan's architecture, anthropology, archaeology, and nature have resulted in a large archive of images.

Khammash holds a B.A. in Architecture from the University of Southwestern Louisiana (1986) and has done graduate work in Ethnoarchaeology at the Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology at Yarmouk University in Jordan (1987-88). His publications include Ancient Landscape: The Landscape Paintings of Ammar Khammash (Mulgrave, Australia: Images Publishing Group, 2009); Jordan, A Timeless Land, with Christa Paul and David Saunders (I. B. Tauris, 2005); and Notes on Village Architecture in Jordan (University of Southwestern Louisiana, 1986). He lives and works in Amman.
