“VISUAL NARRATIVE”

15 March – 10 May 2022

Featuring works by:

Aisha Al Sulaiti
Hassan Manasrah
Hind Al Obaidli
Mashael Al Hejazi

The age old idiom ,“Every picture tells a story” is the inspiration for this group exhibition featuring works by, Aisha Al Sulaiti, Hassan Manasrah, Hind Al Obaidli  and Mashael Al Hejazi. The presentation focuses on the how artists choose to tell stories with images, tapping into their imaginations through subjects which range from literature and nature, to philosophy.  “Visual Narratives” explores  each artist’s personal response to the world around them.  By using a range of different media, they draw from eclectic sources to create evocative compositions.

Humans have employed pictures to express the ineffable since the dawn of civilisation, beginning with primitive cave paintings and later, through the  development of playful artistic movements such as dada, surrealism, and graffiti art. Even the very simple emoticons we use in our daily digital communications express our emotions without words. Delving into their imaginations, these artists tease out their own wordless responses into compelling compositions to share unique stories.
