Product Description

Om Kalthoom Al-Alawi‘s use of mediums varies drastically. From acrylic to paper, she seems to find inspiration in the simple human form and what its movement symbolises.

The more abstract of her compositions may look like myriads of incidental colours to a casual passer-by but upon closer inspection you’re able to pick out hints of human familiarity. The figures used through Al-Alawi’s works all have an unmistakable fragility, making them the perfect reflection of human life.

But, it’s when these silhouettes are translated through the two dimensional mediums of paint and mixed media that something truly special happens. Through pieces like No Sitting Down After Today and Prayer Of The Soul, Al-Alawi blends a stark of bluntness with a colourful saturation to create images of true depth which show, quite candidly, her views on religion and it’s role within the society she has grown up with.

As a proven adept of both two and three dimensional mediums Om Kalthoom Al-Alawi is undoubtedly a talent with an excitingly unpredictable body of work under her belt which is set to grow beautifully in the years to come.
