The solo exhibition of the plastic artist, Sawsan Hajj Ibrahim, entitled “Shaghaf” included a clear development for her in formulating the painting with methods and techniques characterized by its belonging to the expressionist abstract style with attempts to present new artistic visions.
The exhibition, hosted by Louay Kayali Gallery in the Arab Gallery, included 43 paintings in oil and acrylic techniques, with sizes ranging from small, medium and large, with human themes, most of which were the heroine of the woman.
Regarding the diversity of color climates and formations in the exhibition’s work, plastic artist Sawsan said in a statement to “SANA”: “I love diversity and resort to all means and artistic methods that help me to paint my painting in a state of contentment with a constant passion to reach my goal in formulating a beautiful painting entitled intellectual and aesthetic dialogue in colours. And lines that reflect my psychological state.”
The artist, Sawsan, explained that in two years she completed several works on the years of war, with the presence of paintings about love, as well as portraits and various human cases, indicating that the woman is the hero in her paintings.
The owner of the exhibition pointed out that the abstract expressionist method is what she prefers over other artistic methods, so as to leave the viewer the freedom to understand the painting and its meanings in his mood and vision, relying on some of the symbols she uses to be a key to understanding what she wants to reach.
On the title of the exhibition, she said: "I named this exhibition Shaghaf to express my condition with art and my love for it since childhood, as I strived through it to achieve qualitative leaps that satisfy myself and the viewers, and to achieve happiness for them and me through my oldest paintings."
