Location : Sharjah Heritage Museum

“Harmony: Aesthetics of Ornamentation in Emirati Heritage" Exhibition “Harmony: Aesthetics of Ornamentation in Emirati Heritage" Exhibition

The artist’s work was inspired by ornamentation in Emirati heritage. The works feature decorative units of geometric and floral ornamentation in doors, windows and small spaces in walls and oriel windows. It is worth mentioning that these units are repeated beautifully and delicately on in women’s adornments, such as clothing and jewelry. The artist visually employed these decorative units, inspired from Emirati culture, in interchangeable relationships with the colored spaces in her artworks which are inspired by the natural environment. With the aim of reviving the beautiful details and preserving our authentic heritage, the exhibition encourages contemplation of the ornamentations’ details inspired by the ancient Emirati culture as well as absorbing its beauty.
