Zawyeh Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibition at Alserkal Avenue, Dubai titled Inner Sanctuary by the young Palestinian artist Rana Samara. Opening on 22nd of May; the exhibition showcases a body of work focusing on the exploration of the artist’s own intimate space from an emotional perspective.
Samara depicts the inside of her world with fine details incorporating daily objects and furnishing. She explores her personal space; the lounge, the bedroom, the corners in her favourite café and other familiar places. Samara uses colours, motifs, and shapes to convey her sentiments. By doing so she is showing either her content, calmness, anxiety, or frustration – leaving out one central aspect: humans. Her series is a bid to capture traces of precious moments that people leave behind. Her paintings are clearly influenced by her deep sentiments towards those places.
The work is executed using the artist’s unique signature of charming vibrant colours and stunning decorative motifs. The exhibition presents large paintings as well as small sized ones on the contrary to her previous exhibitions which consisted of large scale canvases.
