“Fades Away”, A Solo Exhibition by Walid Taher
In his body of work, titled "Fades Away", Taher once more seamlessly bridges the separate realms of visual art and the written word. In this collection, the artist set out to explore the verses of poetry by renowned poet Wadie Saadeh. It is the age-old unison of music and lyrics, using bold vivid colours to create an emotional symphony of art, words and meaning.
Lina Mowafy’s latest body of work is a direct interpretation of the artist’s life. In her new collection “Mistress of Life”, the artist set out to create art that evokes liberation, joy, and vulnerability. She seeks to reflect the diversity of her everyday life experiences and emotions. Identified by her bold lines and a vivacious palette, she often creates scenes that are exuberant and multi-dimensional.
تعتبر مجموعة ”خليلة الحياة“ للفنانة لينه موافي إنعكاس مباشرلحياتها، فشرعت في إبتكار لوحات تثير أحاسيس التحرر والفرح وأيضاً ضعف المشاعر أحياناً، لتعكس للمتفرج تنوع تجاربها اليومية ومشاعرها المختلفة. من خلال خطوطها الجريئة و ألوانها المفعمة بالحيوية، تخلق لينه مشاهد حية ومتعددة الأبعاد.
Mowafy views abstraction as a spontaneous expression of one’s state of mind; a methodology she continuously experiments within her voluminous and varied body of work.
I write to you a lot I know.
This morning I want to set a clear intention.
I want to make art that sets me free. And I want it to be really nice. To show all the things I feel. And maybe wanted to feel. I want it to be an expression of my life. The small things, the bigger things, and the overwhelming feelings that sometimes take over me like a possessed woman. Let it be soft and loving.
Let it be sweet. From a place of knowing that you are with me all day every day. When I am having a dark night let it express my vulnerability, not my pain. Fill it with hope. Joy. Excitement.
May it be filled with my energy. My love for life. My family. My sweet babies. My friends. The crazy dogs.
I want it to be elevating. Like a sigh of relief, maybe? Restoring. Free. Liberated and liberating. Transparent, unafraid. Alive and pulsing.
Thank you. I will let you know how it goes.
