A photographer has paid a tribute to Abu Dhabi’s landmarks by creating unique and fascinating artwork based on Islamic geometric patterns
French photographer Isabelle Avenarius’s latest art exhibition is one we highly encourage you to go and discover with friends and family before the end of June 2015.

Open daily from the 15th of April till the 30th of June 2015
The exhibition is composed of ten 1m diameter circular images printed on acrylic and 3 square artworks.
The circular images are reminiscent us of Islamic geometric patterns and the square images of mosaics. The closer you approach the artwork and start observing in detail, the more you will discover how these patterns are actually created with Abu Dhabi landmarks and city landscapes such as the Sheikh Zayed Mosque with its columns, domes or windows, the Abu Dhabi skyline that reflects on the water, marina and many more spots in the Capital.
These images are quite fascinating acting like a kaleidoscope with familiar spots shot in the image integrated and repeated to form a unique pattern.
This is also an art journey as some of us will think of an Aztec pattern and others will remember a floor tile when visiting Morocco or Tunisia while observing the same artwork.
So don’t miss the exhibition and let your imagination come to the surface while observing these surprising and meditative images.
All pictures are direct prints on acrylic, signed and available to purchase in a limited edition of seven.
