Limitless: Areej Rajab

Bahraini artist Areej Rajab explores the subtle character of colour and the fleeting nature of light. Her work is characterised by dynamic brushstrokes, shifting planes of colour and pulsating forms; as an artist she seeks order in a chaotic world, aiming to find pattern in the abstract works she creates. The exhibition will feature two collections of work. The first is a series of layered paintings that are reworked over several visits to the same canvas. Their colours are bright and plentiful, but with a muted quality that evokes a faded recollection of a once-vivid event. The second series is the artist’s latest work, a return to a more suggestive style though still gestural in their abstraction. Although the viewer is unable to pick out any clearly defined scene, there is still landscape present in these pieces.
