Emad Dhahir

 BORN on 1964 in Baghdad, Iraq, on the 1989 he got his Bachelor of Sculpture from the university of  Baghdad. He lived in Jordan from 1994 until 2005 then he immigrated to Australia.

 

THE MAIN SOURCES OF INSPIRATION FOR MY SCULPTURAL BODY OF WORK COMES FROM  THE MYTHOLOGY OF MY OWN CULTURE – THE ANCIENT MESOPOTAMIA WHICH ARE BLENDED WITH RITUALS OF MY DAILY LIFE – MY DREAMS AND MY MEMORIES.

I BORROW THE BEAUTY FROM FORMAL AND AESTHETIC QUALITIES OF OLD ANCIENT SCULPURES AS WELL AS THE LANGUAGES AND FROMS OF MODERN SCULPTURE SUCH AS THOSE OF GIACOMETTI, TRASFORMING THEM INTO NEW CONTEMPORARY LANGUAGE AND SPICING THEM WITH AN ‘IRAQI STYLE’.

THIS ‘STYLE’ OFTEN CONTAINS AND INTERPRETS SERIOUS SUBJECT MATTER IN FORM AND CONTENT WHICH PROVIDE TO MY SCULPTURES DIFFERENT HUMAN

ISTIC AND AESTHETIC QUALITIES.

WHILE FACING THESE HONESTLY MADE SMALL-SIZE SCULPTURES,THE VIEWER SHOLD COMPREHEND THAT THEY ARE JUST CREATIVE AND PLAYFUL FOUNDATION FOR BIGGER SCULPTURAL ARTISTIC PROJECTS WAITING TO BE CREATED IN PUBLIC SPACE.
