A solo exhibition featuring recent work by Abdalla Al Omari – his second solo show at the gallery, but his first as a represented artist.
Al Omari is clever with his use of scale and composition in representing the mundane to express themes that are everything but that: “he captures our quotidian and intimate gestures alluding to our deepest secrets and regrets,” says the press release. “Deep beliefs and the most discrete thoughts come through when immortalising moments of everyday life. The unspoken taboos emanating through the movements, sexuality, religion, and addiction, are all part of the conversation … All along, Abdalla plays with anonymity, keeping things universal: The trivial and banal shared by the ordinary person.”
To 8 November.
