Event Details

The Workshop Dubai and Fann A Porter are pleased to invite you to the opening reception of Rana Raouda’s Believing In Light, featuring a selection of paintings on canvas, on Wednesday 9 December, from 7 to 10 pm.

Rana Raouda’s bright and vivacious canvases radiate warmth and positivity, and the artist fluently expresses her love of nature through abstract forms.

Working with acrylics on canvas, Rana creates numerous layers, often in various tones of the same colour, giving each painting a sense of depth and movement. Her inspiration comes from life and nature, she paints always from her memory.

“When I start a painting I do not plan the entire composition. The desire to express myself comes from within and what my brush conveys are moments that I have captured in my mind’s eye.” – Rana Raouda.

‘Abstract landscapes generally allow for the viewers’ own visual connections and interpretation to transport them to a certain place they find in a particular artwork. However, Rana’s paintings direct viewers to imagine only places wrapped in serenity and calmness.’ – Ghada Kunash, Founder, Fann A Porter, The Workshop Dubai.

Believing in Light runs from 9 December 2020 – 9 January 2021 at Fann A Porter, gallery space at The Workshop Dubai.
