2021 EXHIBITIONS + PUBLIC ART PROJECTS
STOPPING BY THE COLOUR WHEEL (A Fabulation of Three Artists)
Grace Cossington Smith Gallery May 15 to June 5 2021
The three artists in the exhibition, Nuha Saad, Sherna Teperson and Elefteria Vlavianos, delight in exploring the vibrational and sensate relationships between their works. They play with the syntax and colour relationships arising through both considered juxtaposition and play, revealing surprising relationships between colour and form, as they also consider the material and immaterial porous boundaries within the exhibition.

THE FOLLY OF COLOUR
Galerie Pompom February 10 to March 14, 2021
Nuha Saad works with optimism and a modernist inheritance turning to colour and abstraction in a time of uncertainty and upheaval. Saad’s work identifies with both western art training and an eastern sensibility. The works exhibited in The Folly of Colour demonstrate the feeling of being in-between different cultural experiences. In the exhibition eastern forms bump up against the hard geometries of minimalist and formalist tendencies alike, but in a gentle way. One side supports the other, completes it and balances it formally.
