Green Art Gallery
Solo exhibition | Maryam Hoseini
23 March - 9 May
For her first solo exhibition with the gallery, Maryam Hoseini has created a body of work that builds upon her ongoing curiosity about space and sequence as a formula for a narrative. Examining the human body and its relationship to physical space, violence, and stereotype, the paintings act as counterparts to the viewer. An abstraction of the body itself, Hoseini’s works become our inverse with hands on their hips, standing contrapposto, bent over, and filled with layered scenes of intimacy, play, fear, displacement, and humour.

Michael John Whelan | Nocturnes
23 March - 7 May
Michael John Whelan has long been concerned with environmental changes relating to historical events and future projections. Investigating humanity's physical effects and inherent mutability, he explores places and phenomena that resonate with a past or future trauma. Despite the complexity and gravity of the subjects, the projects’ physical manifestations are often characterised by their minimal, yet arresting aesthetics. Nocturnes is the artist’s fourth solo presentation at Grey Noise, Dubai.
