Rearranging the Riddle. New works by Shaikha Al Mazrou

The first institutional solo show of the artist in her native UAE

Maraya Art Centre, Al Taawun Road, Al Qasba, Sharjah, UAE

The exhibition features a new body of works that investigate the dialectic between an autobiographic component and the abstraction of a visual solution that suggests intimacy while denying it at the same time. Direct in their title, although cryptic in their formulation, all the works originate from conversations that the artist had in recent past and delve into a process of self-analysis, regardless of the apparent neutrality of the actual sculptures and 3D paintings exhibited.

Deeply informed by a series of theoretical readings, among which Briony Fer’s On Abstract Art plays a fundamental role, the works created for this occasion draw multiple ascending lines between Al Mazrou and the artists who have preceded her in the exploration of abstract language, while positioning her as a new strong voice in this lineage.
