الفنانه غدير سعيد

“Ghadeer Saeed’s digital artworks on display at Jacaranda Images take the visitor into a whirlwind of mixed emotions and feelings “somewhere between war and love”.

The exhibition, under the title, “Memories of War and Love”, displays Saeed’s works that masterfully appeal to one’s feelings, memories and thoughts. By “using photographic archives of the last century,” the artist forms a collage of fragmented, yet connected images that represent the complex state of human emotions everywhere.
Saeed’s style aims to emulate “interwoven cinematic scenes” to convey the universality of emotions that human beings experience, according to a press release by Jacaranda Images. Dedicating her work to anyone who has gone through a defining experience of pain in war, diaspora, or any kind of loss, she does not highlight any ethnicity or race by juxtaposing humans from different times and cultures to deliver the message that “we all love, hate, and fear the same way”.
Saeed, an architect, has first tapped into her passion for this kind of art two years ago out of what she describes as “coincidence”. The artist says that the main inspiration behind her works are old photographs that address her feelings and motivate her to condense this surge of emotions in a collage of similar – and contrasting – old images. She refuses to strictly define the emotions that each work evokes, preferring to invite every individual to delve into their own feelings and experiences to interpret the emotional baggage of each work.”
