Nuha Saad joins Galerie pompom

Galerie Pompom welcomes sculptor artist Nuha Saad to its stable.

Words: Emma Pham

Sydney’s Galerie PomPom has announced its representation of sculptor Nuha Saad. Saad’s work is informed by antipodean formalism and post-pop, emanating a mesmerising combination of colours and patterns. Her recent solo exhibition Ornamental Fancies prompted George Adams, director of Galerie Pompom, to invite her to join the gallery stable.

Adams has had a long relationship with Nuha; she first exhibited at Adams’ ARI MOP Projects in 2003. He continued to curate her into group exhibitions such as Eldorado at Adelaide’s Downtown gallery and Our Lucky Country at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery.

A standout moment for Adams is the group exhibition Painting/ not Painting in 2017. “This exhibition exemplifies why I have always been drawn to Nuha’s work, as it is that perfect crossover from one medium to another,” he says.

Saad’s work is currently available for private viewing by appointment with the gallery. Please contact them to arrange a suitable viewing time.
