Saddam's external representations are reflections of his inner life, his paintings are filled with strange animal like, dream-like forms. This "inner self" deconstruction is externalized through various forms that hovers consistently throughout his work and he would argue around us in real life, following us wherever we may be in our day-to-day activities and moods. This September, Saddam with this exhibition will mark a turning point as he fills the entire gallery with major new and interesting outwork
