IAIA Opening Reception: Six Landscapes: Daniele Genadry & Matt Saunders

6:00 PM – 8:00 PM


IAIA invites you to join them in celebrating Six Landscapes, an exhibition by Daniele Genadry & Matt Saunders.

The Institute of Arab and Islamic Art is pleased to announce a two-person exhibition of works by Daniele Genadry and Matt Saunders. Featuring six paintings, in addition to a selection of drawings and prints, this exhibition explores the artist’s sustained engagements with photography and film and how these mediums are employed as a way to further evolve the field of painting. Both Genadry and Saunders begin by using images of landscapes that have been generated by camera, and through a detailed meditative process of painting, the works come to life inside a new framework, thus granting them the possibility to conjure their own histories. The pairing of their luminous paintings provides the viewer with a deeper insight into the various methods in which both artists experiment with light as a way to define their respective worlds, ones that ebb and flow between notions of presence, disappearance and fragility.
