About The Work
Al Saleh’s latest series, showcased at her 4th solo exhibition titled “The 3 Phase Signal”, tells a story of tolerance and human connection through the symbolic use of sine waves, The artists seeks to emphasise the importance of deepening the connection between different nationalities and religions. Just like the colourful, ever changing, yet always familiar visual representation of the sine waves, our humanity behind all our cultural differences will always connect us.
