Exhibition from 7th of March till 28th of March 2012.
This exhibition includes a mural installation of sculptures and a series of recent paintings in the continuity of my plastic research. In the 1990s, I started to develop my work on the figure of the “human-insect”. Agitation, aggressiveness, the hustle and bustle of the population during the Lebanese civil war inspired the idea of a dehumanized human being with animal behavior. The anxiety of war and the human figure have been the pretext to a research on the musicality of color. With time, my canvas has evolved to a study of the world and the balance between order and chaos. My new figuration is an observation of chaos through the space of the canvas, reflection of the world.
