French artist Olivier Moriette is set to open his new solo exhibition in Andalus Garden today (January 10).

Scribbles, which focuses on lines, colours and patterns, will open at Jehan Saleh Gallery and Printmaking Studio at 7pm tonight.

You’ll then be able to visit the exhibition from February 11 until February 29.

Speaking about his work, Moriette says, “For fifteen years I have been inspired by the lines of nature, leading to introspection and meditation.

“As the initial gaze is drawn to the organization and composition of the space, the lines are then reworked and reinvested in my studio where multiple factors influence an always questioned creative process.

“Thorough graphic research in my studio has guided my work until I have recently discovered the universal language of children’s scribbles, ‘Gribouillis’, the purest forms of nature itself.”

His recent work uses the scribbles of his own children. He then interprets the patterns and uses them to express natural landscapes he has been inspired by.
Sun-Thu 10am-midnight. Jehan Saleh Gallery and Printmaking Studio, Andalus Garden, Manama (3330 9294).
