Ghadeer Saeed’s creations are complex, not only in execution, but also in spirit. Thematically, her work is highly charged in manners emotional, political, and spiritual. Ghadeer's work predominantly explores topics such as war, love and chaos with a residing nostalgic feel. Stylistically, the seamless blend of monochromatic backgrounds with the sparse yet vivid bursts of a full-spectrum of color is her signature style. Her background in architecture is reflected in the linear nature of the colorful complications in her work.
Ghadeer was born in Libya and is of Jordanian origin. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture. She has had a illustrious career as an architect and designer at the Amman-based architectural firm Jaffar Touqan and Partners. On top of that, she has done freelance work for numerous residential, commercial and mixed-used projects in Jordan. She has also participated in several local and international architectural competitions.
Ghadeer's foray into the art world began with her capturing the flavors of her destinations through her camera’s lens during her travels. Over the years, she has developed a unique style through which she incorporates her own photographs with iconic Oriental and global images through a giclée printing process. Her first exhibition was through a contribution to the 2009 Sunny Art Fair in Amman, Jordan. Her first solo exhibition, “Memories of War and Love”, took place in 2010 at the Jacaranda Image Gallery in Amman, Jordan. Her second solo exhibition was held at Dar Al-Anda Art Gallery in 2013.
