Abstraction: Subverting Reality


Abstraction: Subverting Reality exhibition, curated by Amal Zeyad Ali. The exhibition offers more than 25 works of multidisciplinary contemporary artists: Noor Abuissa, Amna Al-Baker, Shaikha Al-Hardan, May Al-Mannai, Hassan Al-Mulla, Ebtisam Al Saffar, Ryan Browning, Sarah Jayyousi, Jesse Payne, Michael Perrone, and Twiggy Shmeissany. Abstraction in art goes beyond the five senses, creating a unique sixth sense—the sixth sense being an uncanny feeling that is not articulately described. No abstract piece is the same. No experience of abstract work is the same. In that sense, it is the most idiosyncratic form of art. The artist goes beyond reality to try to express what there are no strong words for through shapes, lines, and colors to explore ideas far out of the canvas and our physical reality. The exhibition reflects different techniques, colors and shapes. It includes painting, drawing and sculpture. The exhibition features artists from past and current residency programmes at the Fire Station, as well as newcomers to the Fire Station that were invited to participate. It presents a range of artworks by each of the 11 artists, encouraging the viewer to be empowered to see what they want to represent by each piece and to receive a unique experience.
