The practice of Mouez Hamdi offers an expressive and aesthetic investigation of environment and of a personal imagination, where formal combinations are used to explore and articulate considered sensorial and mental lived experiences. Through a synthesis of colour, forms and objects, the works slowly reveal a sensibility for an uncertain and a tentative application of thought. This doubt and unresolved questioning that comes from Hamdi allows the work to be unburdened from carrying contrived predetermined convictions and notions that the work would otherwise have to conform and respond to.
The material and space that Hamdi selects to work with allow him to constantly query what is necessary while building relationships that inform each other within the confines governed through these materials and spaces, revealing subtle conflicts and tensions.
