The piece is about the division in social class. Daniah used 2 typical views, one of rooftops and their haphazard TV dishes, the other is of a garden. Each View represents one social class. The more one is high on the social ladder, the better view one had. But humans have more things in common than not. We focus on eye level pleasures, but forget to look up and see we all share one sky, one heaven. The sky is represented symbolically by the 7 heavens, 7 devisions of different blues. The red triangles encourages the viewer to look up instead of downwards. Red being the colour of all humans, the colour of blood.
Dania Al Saleh’s work is centered on the use of geometry as an elevated communicative tool; a dimension that beautifies the written word, whilst simply contextualizing the truth behind the meaning of the thought intended. In presenting this dynamic selection of work, Athr aims to continue showcasing Saudi artistic talent on a global scale. Drawing on Istanbul’s unique geographic location as a gateway between ‘East’ and ‘West’ aids in placing Saudi art on the map regionally, but also on a global stage, giving visitors a further insight into the flourishing grass-roots art scene of Saudi Arabia.
