Diana Al-Hadid | The Language Of Ruins

Syrian American artist Diana Al-Hadid’s abstract liquefied sculptures with flowing, dripping forms frozen in time uses historical references to comment on various aspects of our contemporary existence. The act of liquefying a material and solidifying it both strengthens and produces an abstraction in form, somewhat reminiscent of a Pollock in 3 dimensions and also of architectural ruins. In this respect, it can be said that she uses the language of ruins to convey her message.

Levitation is another consistent theme; those free-flowing gravity defying forms, aided by the strength of material solidification and by hidden structural members, are inspired from her interest in the Baroque.
