MOHAMMED AL SHAMMAREY

Houston-based Iraqi artist Mohammed Al Shammarey has established a body of photo-based and video work that is an ongoing commentary of the crises of Iraqi culture: wars, rebellion, estrangement, loss, suffering, and the inevitable personal struggle. Simultaneously, his work is an inquiry into the humanistic elements and ramifications of Islamic philosophy, and an investigation into the yearning of the soul for the sublime. Shammarey has been exhibiting throughout the United States, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe, in such venues as the British Museum, London, UK; Columbia University, New York City, New York; The Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, Amman, Jordan; The Station Museum, Houston, Texas; and the Cairo International Biennale, Cairo, Egypt.
