Bermuda National Gallery | Exhibition | Jacqueline Alma Solo Show

Like a tree let the dead leaves drop

The title of this exhibition is taken from the words of 13th century Sufi mystic poet, Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi and resonates with Alma’s spiritual connection to nature.

The intersection between art and life

Alma’s work is drawn from personal experience and the universal human themes of love, loss and existence.

An autobiographical body of work

Alma’s work explores transformational events in her life using meticulous and highly detailed compositions in pencil and oil.

``So much is about the sacredness of life and the universal condition, the objectivity, delicacy, and fragility of life``

Jacqueline Alma shares with us her world

Alma's work reveals the leaves and roots of her journey, the inspiration and challenges of the past and the nourishment of the future
