The artworks of this talented UAE artist represent an integrated, dimensional world in which several components are aligned: artist combines textile material used in the Emirates during 1940s and '50s with traditional elements and models from the UAE cultural milieu that are no longer used, that together contribute to the creation of an interactive artwork.
Founded in 1994 in Abu Dhabi, Salwa Zeidan Gallery specialises in Contemporary art, representing established and emerging artists from around the globe. The gallery features works in a variety of mediums from paintings, photography and sculptures to installation and performance art.
