Mona Saudi: Poetry and Form

Sharjah Art Museum, Corniche street, Arts Area, Sharjah, UAE

Presented by the Sharjah Art Foundation in collaboration with Sharjah Art Museum, “Poetry and Form” include works by Mona Saudi from the mid-1960s till today, encompassing a large selection of the stone sculptures for which she is best known as well as paintings, drawings and other works on paper inspired by the works of the poets Mahmoud Darwish and Adonis. The show highlights Saudi’s exploration of the intertwined relationship between natural material and modern form. In many of her works, notions of growth, fertility and the body are explored through her introduction of compositional movement to conventional geometric shapes. A substantial presentation of the artist’s sculptures will provide insight into the evolution of Saudi’s aesthetic and intellectual journey, which is particularly evident in her work with different types and colours of stone, including white marble, pink limestone, green marble and black diorite, all sourced from the greater region.
