until 20.09. | #2860ARTatBerlin | aquabitArt Galerie is showing the exhibition “From the Land of Eternity” with works by the artist Huda Al Saie, curated by Frances Stafford, starting September 11, 2020.
On September 11 the new exhibition “From the Land of Eternity” by Huda Al Saie opens its doors at aquabitArt gallery during Berlin Art Week 2020.
Huda Al Saie is a Bahraini artist, most known as the leading pioneer of porcelain art in Bahrain. Exploring new forms of expression, she started creating multiple series of larger acrylic paintings on canvas in 2018 that, due to the scale and medium, allowed Al Saie more freedom in her process. Thanks to the immediacy of the paint, she was now able to enact larger gestural strokes and work with abstraction in general compared to the extremely detailed and precise work that usually lends itself to traditional porcelain painting. Al Saie is inspired by the unique and ancient architecture of Bahrain and the Kingdom’s flora and fauna.
As a connoisseur of Bahraini art, curator Frances Stafford presents the latest works by Huda Al Saie in the exhibition, “From the Land of Eternity” from September 11 until 20, 2020.
Different than many other creatives from Bahrain, Al Saie is not a self-taught artist. She has a Degree in Mass Communication with a minor in Fine Arts from the American University in Beirut – known to be one of the best Universities in the Middle East at the time of her graduation (in the early 80’s). She studied the art of porcelain painting in Geneva in the early 80’s and started teaching porcelain painting lessons in 1986 in Bahrain (almost 35 years). She taught many of the pre-eminent artists and creatives in Bahrain today.
Al Saie has exhibited countless times in Bahrain, most notably at the Bahrain National Museum, and at the Kingdoms preeminent Art fair- Art Bab. She has exhibited in Kuwait and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Part of her porcelain collection was exhibited in Gstaad, Switzerland in December 2012. Al Saie has been commissioned for special porcelain projects in the Gulf region during her years of production. Most notably for the Shaikh Ibrahim Cultural Centre in Muharraq, Bahrain, 2004, the Dubai Civil Aviation Department in 2005, Qatar Airways, the Bahrain International Circuit (BIC), the Bahrain World Trade Centre, The Bahrain National Museum, the National Theatre of Bahrain and for the “Pearl Route”, A UNESCO World Heritage site for The Ministry of Culture, Bahrain.
