“Bulldozer”

byHanyRashed

A continuation of his latest exhibition Toys (2014), Bulldozer is an ongoing project started in mid-2014.

As in the previous one, the paintings of Bulldozer combine the use of manipulated plastic sheets together with the distortion of images from various sources.

The bulldozer which appears in some of the paintings and gives the title to the exhibition, epitomizes the deconstruction and reposition affecting the people and the society, either in a cynical satire or playful reimagining. Bulldozer reflects the sarcasm of human and social behavior and relationships.

 

Until 23 April 2015

”Parallel Life”

by Mohamed Abdulla

The Parallel Life projects stems from my interest in insects and their behaviour, which accompanies me since childhood.

Even today, I find myself monitoring flocks of ants and playing with my fingers to interrupt their compact disposition. Then, I am amazed by how soon they are able to deal with the obstacle and come back to their earlier well organizedbehaviour.

The project Parallel Life wants to explore the parallel and mysterious universes other than the human’s one. The project aims to portray the world of the insects with its aesthetics and behaviour, especially some features that attracted me such as mass, colour and movement.
