Need a bit of tranquility in your life? Well it’s time to shut those laptops, power off your iPhones and head down to Habtoor Palace, where you can lose yourself to some beautiful serenity-inducing art.

A new season of Art Perspective is now being exhibited at Habtoor Palace, LXR Hotels & Resorts and it’s all about restoring calm, which is definitely something we can get on board with.

Palette Tranquility is being exhibited at Le Patio at the hotel for two months, showcasing the work of four talented artists, to make you feel like you’re “walking on clouds”.

Artists Karine Roche, Annabelle Smith Bigno, Leila Barakat Mukhaimer and Anneke Bester’s have had their works compiled by Sulty Events & Entertainment for the exhibition, which could soon become a go-to spot for the stressed to unwind.

“The art selected provides a sense of calm with a mixed combination of modernised techniques and colour choices, as if you are walking on clouds”, said Vanessa de Caires, Owner of Sulty Events & Entertainment Dubai.

“Le Patio provides an ideal venue to portray the intricacy and palette scheme in both art and architectural surroundings of the venue, essentially complimenting each other.”

South African-born sculptor Anne Bester has worked on massive blockbuster movies as a prop sculptor, including The Hobbit and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

The artist explores her African roots with tall thin figures and celebrates the human form in highly expressive poses, while the modestly dressed figures speak of her experiences living in the Middle East.

French artist Karine Roche, who lives in the UAE, derives her ideas from nature and urban spaces, using an artistic technique known as sensitive surface to transform the concrete jungle of the building with the blending of soft fabrics and splashes of colour to bring her depictions of the city’s urban flora and fauna to life.

The exhibition will also showcase the work of artist Annabelle Smith Bigno from France and the UK, whose artworks are inspired by the interconnection of subjects with surrounding energy and flow – a place beyond the world of noisy human thought.

The result is a diffusion of fibres, threads, collage and a multitude of textures, creating a unique balance between subject, composition and colour.

Artist Leila Barakat Mukhaimer will also be exhibiting her current collection, which is inspired by life and natural phenomena.

We can’t wait for a bit of peace.
Free. Until early April. Habtoor Palace, Al Habtoor City (04 435 5555).
