A pioneer in Saudi Arabia’s contemporary art movement, Lulwah Al Homoud is celebrated for an intricate process that uses Arabic letters to form absorbingly complex abstract works on paper.
‘As we engage in the dichotomies of existence, the rhetoric between substance, essence and fate compels us into asking what is abstract, what is solid, what is common and what is particular. This discourse moves back and forth between the humanities and the sciences, constantly shedding and reconstructing subtle layers. Arguably, what is most incongruous in this discourse is what is most convergent within it: communication. Using a pure language, this work locks together geometry, faith and beauty, pushing the boundaries of what we know, how we know it and how it is perceived.’ -Lulwah Al Homoud
