Suhair Sibai – Sweet Melancholy, London, UK, 10/1/2013 – 6/3/2013

Posted by admin on 10th January 2013  /   Posted in Exhibitions, Exhibitions in 2013

Lahd Gallery is proud to present to you the latest exhibition of works by Syrian artist Suhair Sibai. Through her work, Suhair explores the concepts of identity and the Self, using the female form as her preferred medium for doing so. Educated as an artist in the sprawling metropolis of Los Angeles, Suhair finds the level of multiculturalism and diversity to which many of us are exposed to these days has the potential to cause the discord, displacement, and division of the Self.

This unique exhibition is an art quest for the viewer to understand the way in which the artist strives to determine who we are as individuals, and how we came to end up in our current predicament. Using emotionally-charged colours, Suhair intentionally provides a contrast to the melancholic narratives, which are intended to ‘create alienation among audiences’. As well, the relatively large sizes of her works are meant to engage her viewers, and ultimately, by combining the emotional elements of her work with their own ‘biases’, Suhair’s audiences are able to experience something totally unique.
