Artist Giuse Maggi will present her latest collection of sustainable art including functional objects and wall hangings inspired by the rich heritage of the Arab tradition and the colors of the Bahraini landscape.
Born and raised in Italy, Giuse Maggi is a multidisciplinary artist who loves to explore materials and their potentiality with antique and new techniques.
Giuse has been working with glass for two decades until a few years ago she discovered the world of recycling and sustainable art; since then she has been combining plastic, metals and fibers with her beloved glass, experimenting weaving and basketry techniques.
Her process involves an intense labor: she builds objects that have been generated by the accumulation of countless small acts. Through repetition and endless variations, her inner thoughts unfold into an emerging form.
Her paintings, rugs, baskets and sculptures are a challenge and represent an intimate desire of beauty in everything is discarded and neglected by humanity.
“Making” becomes a spiritual process, a ritual that links her soul to objects.
Giuse Maggi has exhibited her work in many solo and group exhibitions in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Italy. She currently lives in the Kingdom of Bahrain working as a fulltime artist.
All are welcome!
