Desert Lines

Haider Alawi Al-Alawi takes inspiration from forces found in nature, which then translates into tangible artworks, such as ‘Desert Lines.’ This sculpture explores the artist’s observations on the influence of the wind on the desert sand, and ocean waves on seawater, and nature’s drawing and creation of lines within the elements.
