“You shouldn’t get to live in society and give nothing back. People complain about their taxes, yet they do nothing for the community. That makes me furious.” Kathleen Turner
Kuwaiti artist & sculptor, Sami Mohammed, featured his latest bronze sculptures & paintings in a solo exhibition in Tilal Gallery highlighting humanity’s suffering, depression, disappointment & suppression in the ongoing quest of freedom, dignity & peace.
The first thing that comes on your mind when see Mohammed’s artworks is the wave of changes around the globe, price that people have to pay to earn their right to live freely & chain-less. The sculptures reflect the furious state we all get in when we feel angry & helpless toward the vulnerable & suppressed nations. Mohammed choice to bring out all his furious feelings and anger in what we can describe “masterpiece” sculptures.
Al Maha on Sami Mohammed Artworks:
The only thing I hoped to see is a 3D paintings instead of the flat technique. 3D technique adds a dynamic element to the artwork & makes the objects come out of the canvas, just like the sculptures that were alive though they weren’t moving.
