This will be the first solo exhibition by local contemporary portrait artist, Naomi Hassan.
Hassan’s portrait work is often influenced by pop culture, and integrating elements of abstraction and
symbolic meaning. “I have always been fascinated with portrait art and the challenge of representing
the physical or psychological likeness of an individual onto canvas.
This exhibition of work explores themes of identity and the representations of life through an alternative and distorted reality presented to us through other mediums such as TV and film.
Influences include the study of film aesthetics and the artistic stylings of pop-art.”
