Seamless LoopSheikha Wafa Al Maktoum 26 Sep - 31 Oct 2016Seamless Loop explores themes of iconography, heritage and tradition. The 16-work strong exhibition is comprised of 8 textile pieces, and 8 screen prints. Sheikha Wafa bint Hasher al Makotum’s point of departure was to consider symbols she found endemic of the UAE, icons that symbolized the country. Selecting images of the falcon, the camel, the horse, the gazelle, the fish, the leopard, the fort and the palm, Sheikha Wafa bint Hasher al Maktoum began experimenting with sketches and collages, playing with colour and texture. She began to work with the original images and reduce them to their most simple form, after which she began manipulating the symbols digitally, creating an almost kaleidoscopic design; conjuring thoughts of Islamic geometry.
