Saudi sculpts mainly in stone. Her forms are full of vitality, beauty and a clear sense of equilibrium. She frequently returns to ideas of fertility and growth. Always starting with basic shapes, the square, circle, cylinder, rectangle, she goes on to give them movement, a life of their own – either repeating their forms, varying their depths or heights or cutting them across one another to create new, graceful compositions. She describes herself as a stone lover, respecting and manipulating the primary material of the earth to create her powerful and timeless works. Saudi revels in finding different forms of natural stone from the Middle East, using white marble form Carrara, pink limestone and green marble from Jordan or black diorite from Syria, Mona creates modern, abstract forms expressing themes of life force and creation.
