Hay Hill Gallery is proud to present three exhibitions by Iraqi artists Ala Bashir, Ali Jabbar and Hani Mazhar. Ala Bashir: Memories Of Chairs This show is an attempt to reflect on: what makes a child fight to sit on a particular chair; why most people prefer to sit on the same chair at home; what makes chairs of Napoleon, Isaac Newton, Henry The VIII look different than a chair in a waiting room; whether “chair” becomes a metaphor for identity, home, authority, and security. Ali Jabbar: The Blind Mask Ali Jabbar’s second exhibition at Hay Hill Gallery is a collection of his new works and works exhibited previously. First studying in Baghdad, then at the KKA Design School Copenhagen, Ali Jabbar - the painter and the sculptor - has developed a particular style that will question the viewer’s perception of reality. Based on the artist’s understanding of the world we live in, the paintings are a combination of fiction and facts that contradict each other. Jabbar’s characters never reveal their secrets, but hide underneath masks of seduction and deep contemplation. Hani Mazhar : Countless Shades 'I avoid interpreting my art. I can explain or justify anything else, sometimes with a single word, however I find myself completely unable to hold on to a specific and clear idea that can be used to explain anything that relates to my painting, even the basic agreed measures, such as colours, shapes, lines, symbols or expressions.’

Exhibitions at Hay Hill Gallery

The underlying theme for Hay Hill Gallery's September group show appears to be myth or fantasy; like wandering into a library the works are pages illustrating far-off lands or half-remembered dreams.
