Media One Hotel showcases its latest art exhibition
‘The Journey’ by Jordanian artist Amal Serhan
On Sunday 20th March, Media One’s latest art exhibition will be launched, displaying 12 pieces from the ‘The Journey’ Collection by Amal Serhan. ‘The Journey’ marks the 10th art exhibition to be held at Media One and further highlights the importance of connecting with the local community through art, culture, music and lifestyle that remains a prime focus within the hotel strategy.
Dubai residents and hotel guests alike will have the opportunity to view this latest exhibition until 8th April and take-in the ‘The ‘Journey’ and the 12 exhibit pieces that are inspired by nature, that dissect what we know and offer a new interpretation to the consciousness. One of the objective’s of Amal’s work is to trigger our minds into the exploration of what is visually perceived; stimulating our conscience to question and challenge norms.
Throughout many years of practice and playing a very active role in the local art scene; the next natural progression for Amal was to pursue a career in art education; teaching the fine arts of painting & drawing and specializing in art therapy sessions and children's social and mental developments, recently accredited with a certificate in child's mental health and plans to use the ‘education of art’ to work with children with social and psychological difficulties.
Amal, stated, “I am pleased to be working on this collaboration with Media One Hotel with ‘The Journey’ Collection, as I enlightened with the beauty of Fine Arts it gives me a further opportunity to pursue my colourful and vibrant creativity.”
Amal’s interpretation of Fine Arts is ‘a thick coat of paint blended with another colour’ leaving its mark on a white canvas as demonstrated by the work on display, which creates colourful and vibrant spirit.
Mark Lee, General Manager stated, “Media One Hotel regularly opens its doors to renowned artists in a bid to make art more accessible, allowing the public access to the artists’ great works 24/7, so they have no need to feel shy about entering the world of art galleries. This varied collection first came to our attention at Art Dubai and the sweeping calligraphic shapes complement the contemporary setting of our hotel. When visiting the exhibition guests will be able to identify how the works are characterised and influences by nature in evocative colours”.
Media One’s contemporary lobby will proudly host The Journey Exhibition from Sunday 20th March until Friday 8th April 2016 and encourages everyone to explore this truly unique artwork.
