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.’
