ABOUT Jamal Habroush Al Suwaidi
Born in 1971, Emirati artist Jamal Habroush Al Suwaidi's major concern stems from his relationship with the local and the global environment, and what it comprises from both historical stereotactic notions, and concepts arising from change and prosperity. In both dimensions, the artist works upon the significant idea and its endless innovations,...

About this artwork
A work by the Emirati artist Jamal Al Suwaidi takes the topical issue of water as its theme, prompting viewers to ponder on the vital part it plays in helping the natural world to survive and thrive. 

The tree’s trunk stands firm and strong, while its branches span outwards and extend upwards, in a sign of robust health and life. Movement and shape are provided by metallic joins, while water valves in cherry red denote the blossom, their detailing giving a brilliantly lifelike portrayal of flower petals. The tree’s stature suggests a strong, healthy specimen, although a scattering of dry red sand at the base of the trunk serves as a stark reminder that without water, both the natural world and humankind have no hope of survival. ‘Water Garden – Red’ forms part of a series begun by the artist in August 2016.

Commenting on the installation, Al Suwaidi said: “Water is the most essential compound in the entire universe, forming 70% of our planet and 75% of the human body. Using water carelessly or wasting it has a knock-on effect throughout the entire food chain. We should use it responsibly and look to technology, such as modern irrigation systems, to help us save this precious resource. By raising our children with this mindset, we can build a community that has a genuine understanding of how important it is to use water sparingly and respect its life-giving and life-saving properties.”
