JORDANIAN ARTISTS EXHIBIT IN BAHRAIN FOR NATIONAL DAY CELEBRATIONS

Titled '3 Dimensions, 3 Jordanian Artists' the exhibition of 35 paintings, photographs and drawings are included in the Embassy of The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan's celebrations of their National Day and the 10th Anniversary of HM King Abdullah's II ascension to the throne.

Ammar Khammash's richly textured oils share his sense of belonging to, and respect for the landscape of Jordan. A single broad brushstroke can represent an entire mountain with all its geological history, in colours that emerge from the ground itself. Bader Mahasneh uses layers of ink to breathe life into mysterious and sometimes faceless figures, showing the depth and complexity of the human state through his technique. Tariq Dajani's exquisite portraits of the pure bred Arabian horse pay tribute to this creature of unparalleled magnificence and spirit.

The exhibition took place at The Bahrain National Museum, on 31 May and 1 June 2009.

The exhibition was curated and arranged by Jacaranda Images, Amman Jordan.
Jacaranda Images is a fine art print gallery dedicated to showcasing original art prints and works on paper as well as arranging group and solo exhibitions.
