Sharjah Art Foundation presents the first solo exhibition of the work of Andrew Stahl in the Middle East. Shown previously in numerous exhibitions across Europe, Asia and America, his work explores notions of transcultural interaction.
Curated by Hoor Al Qasimi, the exhibition will include a selection of Stahl’s large-scale figurative paintings dating back to the 1970s as well as a sculpture made in situ. During the exhibition, Stahl will be leading painting workshops.
The exhibition will open on 6 July 2019 in Al Hamriyah Studios, one of Sharjah Art Foundation’s off-site venues.
Ranging from painting to sculpture, Andrew Stahl’s work explores the symbolic, the formal and the expressive whilst engaging notions of the transcultural. His paintings and sculptures are often simple structures and yet at close proximity embed smaller images, discoveries and details. Symbolic details within these paintings and sculptures do not necessarily reveal a narrative, they are a collection of flowing thoughts floating across the surfaces.
