Hiba Schahbaz's "In Solitude" on Display in De Buck’s Virtual Viewing Room

NEW YORK -- De Buck Gallery is pleased to announce In Solitude, a solo show featuring new works on paper by Hiba Schahbaz. In Solitude will be on display in De Buck’s virtual viewing room from May 14th to June 13th, as part of the gallery’s digital programming during quarantine. In Solitude, Schahbaz’s timely new body of work, considers what it means to be an artist during a period of global crisis. Responding directly to her surroundings, Schahbaz’s collection of narrative painting was created in a home studio space as she isolates during the COVID-19 quarantine in New York City. Forced to pause her large-scale works following the temporary closure of her studio, the works in In Solitude mark a return to her life-long practice of creating meditative works on paper. [More]
