Jowhara AlSaud

"These works are still, and will most likely remain, incomplete. But as it stands, they are about many things. They revel in the ‘in between’; photography and drawing, public and private, representation and abstraction. There’s also obscuring and revealing, the visceral and ethereal. They are many things. They are as stingy as they are generous. There’s truth and guile. Whether they transcend or trespass, they are about the lines we draw, and all the spaces in between."
