Something Different II
November 2017

 

Something Different II For many years, I have been experimenting with a body of work containing new forms that are partly inspired by the geological phenomenon known as a ‘desert rose’, the complex shape of which is open to various interpretations. As well as other works inspired by natural objects, most of these sculptures were hidden in my London studio, because my artistic profile was that of a painter with an interest in printmaking. In 2010, I showed sculpture alongside my paintings for the first time during the opening of Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha. In 2015, I agreed to have an exhibition without any paintings or prints, featuring sculptures and object art only, at Meem Gallery in Dubai. Charlie Pocock, the director of Meem, suggested Something Different as a title for that exhibition. Since then, I have been working between London, Amman, Warsaw and Turin to push my artistic vision and practice to encompass a wider variety of materials and forms. A variety of these works are shown here in Something Different II, spanning from 2012 to new works produced in Amman specifically for this exhibition, using different materials, including bronze, coloured polyester resin, and blocks of cement. They reflect my own eagerness to challenge myself and adopt a new vision within a different landscape of creativity. Dia al-Azzawi London, September 2017
