The sculptural installations of Diana Al-Hadid showcase a grunge style art collection that is given an intentionally damaged and corrupt appearance.

Using extensive tubing, broken plastic and wooden stakes with jagged ends as well as honey comb-textured materials, the artist builds massive sculptures that have the look of abandoned structures that have begun to decay, and some also look like the stalagmites and stalactites of ancient caves. Her work looks like it has been torn apart by storms, burned by fires and rusted over time.

Those who enjoy the grunge style art aesthetic like to see the decay of what were once impressive structures, something that usually occurs over time. With the Diana Al-Hadid installation series, viewers get instant gratification.
