SKYSCAPES, LANDSCAPES & CITYSCAPES
3 – 26 November 2014
On Monday 3 November 2014 at 6:00 pm, Nabad opens an exhibition of watercolours and oils on canvas by multi-disciplinary Jordanian architect and painter, Ammar Khammash.
A master watercolourist, Khammash’s brushstrokes celebrate the medium’s ability to texture material and time. He juxtaposes dark purple shadows of trees with architectural structures, carefully leaving spaces untouched to reflect the glare of the Mediterranean sun and the play of shadows on the morphology of the land. His recent works are highly atmospheric, often depicting clouds, rain and dust storms, and displaying a high sensitivity to the colours of the soil, limestone and chalks that pervade the Jordanian landscape. Khammash also presents a collection of watercolours depicting imaginary Arabian scenes that are reminiscent of Biblical towns and villages. More
