Abstraction: Subverting Reality is a group exhibition featuring works by Noor Abuissa, Amna Al-Baker, Shaikha Al-Hardan, May Al-Mannai, Hassan Al-Mulla, Ebtisam Al Saffar, Ryan Browning, Sarah Jayyousi, Jesse Payne, Michael Perrone, and Twiggy Shmeissany.

Abstraction in art goes beyond the five senses, creating a unique sixth sense, the sixth sense being an uncanny feeling that is not articulately described. No abstract piece is the same. No experience of abstract work is the same. In that sense, it is the most idiosyncratic form of art. The artist goes beyond reality to try to express what there are no strong words for through shapes, lines, and colours.

They encourage you as a visitor to be empowered to see what you want in each piece based on your life experience and identity. In this exhibition, the artist’s perception is subverted and turned into a communal well of perception.
