Following on from AN exclusive Solo show in November 2016 for the internationally acclaimed scottish artist nael hAnna
New works FOR winter 2017 now showing
Illustrated: PAINTING- From Nael's Summer Collection; 'Still life with Lute' by Nael Hanna.
The new works to be shown comprise of over 30 paintings in all. Every piece is complex and beautiful; the richness of colour and indulgence of texture draws the onlooker in to see something different each time. Instantly recognisable seascapes and landscapes form the bedrock of Nael's new body of work and amongst this backdrop he has produced breath-taking still life, as well as capturing the romance and vibrancy of more far flung destinations such as Morocco and Italy.
Based in Angus, Scotland, Nael Hanna has long been regarded as one of the UK's most visionary landscape painters. His love of the Scottish north east coastline has provided the inspiration for much of his 30-year career as a modern contemporary artist. He returns to the colours, textures and natural light that he encounters whilst out walking near his home in rural Angus, each time capturing something new, and detail previously unseen in his art. The wonders of the natural world and nature, are captured and form the essence of his painting.
Nael first came to Dundee in 1983, the year in which he began his studies in drawing and painting at Duncan of Jordanson. In 1987, he won a scholarship to further his study at the acclaimed Hospitalfield Summer School, Arbroath, and it was during that time that he began to depict the dramatic coastline and imposing mountain ranges and spectacular waterfalls that he encountered in his travels throughout Scotland.
Nael’s work has attracted wide spread acclaim in the UK and in many other countries including Malaysia, Egypt and the USA.
As well as exhibitions within the RGI, RSA, SSA and the SSAC, Nael has exhibited in countless prominent galleries throughout the UK and his work is included within major Public and Private Collections worldwide.
