Works of Illuminated Space Project / 791 Mountains Between

2015, 153x203 cm, Acrylic on canvas.


In the second part of the exhibition, the artist will present three recently completed acrylic paintings of her project Illuminated Space: Between Birzeit and Ramallah, To Return: Infiltrate, and Mondrian Boogie Woogie.  critic Maymana Farahat sheds light on the Artist’s recent paintings & reviews them within broader frame of history of modern painting.

Mountains Between recalls the loosely painted color fields of her early 1960s canvases while also incorporating some of the tonal variations that characterize her cutout collages. In the context of Palestine, this atmospheric work evokes a fog-covered scene where shadows fall over landforms on a crisp winter morning.
