Miska Mohmmed’s paintings are heavily inspired by the undulating gestural landscape of her home in Khartoum, growing up nearby the Nile river. Her semi-abstract works fill the picture plane, with subtle color gradations suggesting an interplay between land, water, air, flora and fauna. Her ingenious use of color and line, combined with semi-abstract forms manifests the physical terrains that inform the work as well as their energy and atmosphere - capturing the energetic tension that exists between the bustle of a frenetic city and the tranquility of nature. We will be showcasing new large scale acrylic works on paper demonstrating her magnificent color work and abstraction.
Born in Khartoum, Sudan, Mohmmed received a BFA in Painting from the College of Fine and Applied Arts, Sudan University in 2016. Mohmmed has exhibited widely, including exhibitions at Art Dubai 2022, Dubai, UAE; Art x Lagos 2021 and 2019, Lagos, Nigeria; Investec Cape Town Art Fair 2021, Cape Town, South Africa; Circle Art Gallery in Nairobi, Kenya; the Rashid Diab Arts Centre in Khartoum, Sudan; and the French Cultural Centre in Khartoum, Sudan among others.
