For this series, Adeela Suleman has created eight artworks in different forms ranging from Relief and Tapestry to hand-painted Ceramic plates.
Alongside incorporating different mediums and referencing art styles such as Mughal miniature painting, the artist has adopted ideas from Greek mythology, Ottoman Empire, Iranian tales, and Sub-Continent history.
In her artist statement, Suleman notes, “Throughout history, artists have perceived violence through merged colors, patterns and textures to depict wartime beliefs, ideologies, practices, symbols and values. My work investigates not only artists expression towards terror but also the deep-rooted meaning of violence itself”.
Adeela Suleman’s booth received a large number of visitors and art patrons at the start of the exhibition. She invited all art lovers to visit her booth at E5 Johara at Art Dubai Contemporary.
