Nuha Saad works with the formal aspects of the space between painting and sculpture. Saad has been engaged for a long period of time with the decorative and the architectural. Her work reinvigorates overlooked spaces and displays an inherited sensibility which is influenced by both (post)colonial woodwork with its turned ornamentalism and a Lebanese/Australian heritage where counting, patterning, and colour have remained consistent themes.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Wednesday 2 October 2019
