‘The Secret’ by Rosemary Chamoun at Galerie Janine Rubeiz

Rosemary Chamoun, Her Name Is Rain, 2020, oil on canvas, 120x100cm

Rosemary Chamoun’s solo exhibition, “The Secret,” delves into a profound artistic exploration using oil on canvas. Through the interplay of impasto rigidity and smooth brushstrokes, she merges contrasting elements, symbolising her spiritual journey and the quest to understand the underlying motive of existence. Chamoun’s artwork raises fundamental questions about the meaning of the physical world, our purpose for existence, and the mysteries beyond the spiritual realm. By blending texture and technique, she invites viewers to contemplate their own existential queries and embark on a personal journey of self-discovery. The Secret is an invitation to explore the depths of the human experience and embrace the connection between the physical and the spiritual.
