Paul Haber Retrospective Exhibition
Timepieces holding stories of their own, created from ideas by the hands of the artist who has reached and inspired so many others along his career. In these 37 artworks and installations, we see the artist bringing abstraction into reality. Paul Haber gives character to his creations, and each one transmits emotions. The retrospective exhibition at Aldabra Gallery invites the viewers to take a moment and immerse themselves in this journey of the artist and to freely interpret what they see.
There are happenings around us that sometimes we forget to look at - such as turbulence and gravity. We look at the sea for example but not at the stream and the forces acting on it. In Paul I find an artist who looks further than that; an artist so close to nature that he captures those forces and transforms them into an artwork that we can see. He finds the detail and he brings it to us in his own interpretation of nature. He captures the inverted spaces and the weight of gravity into natural forms. He gives them confidence in strong, particular colours.
''His art connects us to nature, to each other and to ourselves. ''
Haber’s art reminds us to look further and not to be oblivious to the forces affecting our realities. His art connects us to nature, to each other and to ourselves.
On Thursday 6th December 2018, I have had the privilege to attend to the MSA Gold Medal Award Ceremony presented to Paul Haber where I have witnessed a collection of experiences and emotions that the artist has presented to a global community through his dedication. Along with the artist’s outstanding career and profound relationship in Ceramics technique, I am particularly touched by the artist’s genuinity in his devotion.
Aldabra Gallery welcomes the public to visit Paul's work which is available up to 3rd January 2019.
