“Inspired by the UAE” is the theme under which five of Germany’s most talented UAE based female artists bring together a body of work that illustrates how life in the UAE has influenced and enriched their artistic experience. arsnecopinata, Manuela Emmer, Angelika Hamilton, Petra Kaltenbach and Ulrike Krocker use diverse and unusual techniques to consider family life, cultural immersion, transformative powers and human connections in a body of work that invites very personal reflections for all viewers.



Arsnecopinata uses a figurative abstract style that focuses on what connects as us as humans and how we profit by learning from and communicating with each other – especially among the diversity of people in UAE.

Manuela Emmer presents “Merge”, a series of photographs analyzing families living in the UAE of multicultural backgrounds and the aspiration of each parent to pass on their cultural background and beliefs to their children.

Angelika Hamilton’s “Approximations” chart a personal story, measuring cultural immersion by using an object that intrigues most visitors on arrival to the UAE: The Emirati Burqa.

Petra Kaltenbach’s series “Transformation” brings the contrast between old and new to the canvas with ground breaking digital printing technique that involve rust.

Ulrike Krocker’s flow paintings transfer the vibrant and dynamic flow of the Emirates onto the canvas in mesmerizing swirls and curves that bind energetic forces into harmony.
