Muhammad Yusuf, GULF TODAY , August 25, 2023

For Frieze Seoul 2023 (Sept. 6 – 9), Lawrie Shabibi is presenting a selection of new marble inlay works by Hamra Abbas (Pakistani, b. 1976, Kuwait) including a new iteration of her large-scale series titled Mountain 6 (2023). Abbas has for some years been experimenting with marble inlay (Pietra Dura) a decorative art form that involves the use of cut and fitted coloured stones to create intricate images, breaking new ground as she pulls this traditional practice away from its historical function, to create a new form of aesthetics.
