Majd Kurdieh: Surrender to Love
25 November @ 7.00 pm - 10.00 pmFree
New works on paper and canvas from the Syrian artist are characterised by “a sense of heightened expressionism”, where his childlike characters and his colour palette are liberated from restrictions and imbued with poetic depth by accompanying texts.
Over the past four years, Kurdieh has created a cast of characters that appear in his works, notably the Fasaeen – Arabic for ‘tiny ones’: one boy (Fasoon) and one girl (Fasooneh), always smiling in spite of the hardships in their world. The viewer is drawn into a complex world that the artist has been able to simplify, almost with a childlike innocence.
To 16 January.
