Mona Saudi is widely recognised for her stone sculptures, which explore the relationship between natural material and modern form. She creates movement in basic shapes by repeating their forms, varying their dimensions or cutting them across one another.

Saudi’s work has been exhibited at the Institut du monde arabe, Paris (2012); Sursock Museum, Beirut (1993–2011); The Mosaic Rooms, A M Qattan Foundation, London (2010); Jacaranda Images Gallery, Amman (2010); International Cairo Biennale (2003); Les Ateliers Arabes, UNESCO, Beirut (2001); Al Oudaya Museum, Rabat (1999); Darat Al Funun, Amman (1995); National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC, (1994); Institut du monde arabe, Paris (1987); Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo (1981); Oriental Museum, Moscow (1979); International Art Exhibition for Palestine, Beirut (1979) and Musée Rodin, Paris (1978), among others.
