Invitation To The Opening Of Usama Alnassar’s Exhibition: Saturday 13 January, 6-8pm

Please join Alnassar to celebrate the opening of his solo exhibition on Saturday 13 January 6 – 8pm – all welcome!

About the exhibition:
Life & The Other Form of Life is an exhibition of sculptures and paintings, recently completed by Alnassar.

I live surrounded by different forms of life. I love and I hate some of these existing lives, but I’m realising how difficult it is to be hostile to any living being or energy. I am amazed about how much beauty and goodness I find in my “enemies” once I looked at them with different eyes…

About the artist:
Alnassar was born in Damascus in 1975. He comes from a family of artists, both his maternal uncles are famous sculptors. He graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Damascus and in 1999 he arrived in Italy to finish his studies at the Accademia di Carrara.

Like many other sculptors before him, he chose the Apuan mountain as the ideal place to work and develop his artistic talent. His studio is at the foot of the same mountains in which the quarries used by Michelangelo, ” Cave Michelangelo” – a magical place, in the midst of an evocative landscape. It was here that Alnassar constructed an amphitheatre and other inspired construction made with marble.

Alnassar is a visionary artist, he paints and sculpts using different materials. Some of his works reflect his experience as a migrant, coming from Syria to Europe, and bringing with him a world of stories and images. This encounter with other culture fascinated him and made him become sensitive to the changes in humans life and relationships.

Alnassar does not want to immortalise the moment but he wants to record the time.
