An Exhibition without a Title will surely Strike on the Keynote … Or Maybe on the Painting Quill

From the first encounter with this inspirational woman I perceived a woman of high sensibility and creativity enjoying multiple skills since she is a plastic artist, a film maker and an interior designer, all that in the name of Sana Atassi, a talented Syrian artist who has held a solo exhibition at Damascus Opera house, including about 20 paintings depicting the female spirit as a divine soul, a source of inspiration and fertility. 

However, without a title an exhibition might seem loosely wrapped; yet Atassi had a totally different point of view “I deliberately chose to keep my exhibition without a title to keep all possibilities open enlarging the audience's perspective to the highest levels.’ She enthusiastically exclaimed. 

“No Time, but for Love”

What was fascinating about that novelist when I meet her in her comfort zone -her home- that despite all the appearances of a typical Syrian home and family, and most importantly a typical Syrian woman, Amal Abo Saad is far from that description. The Syrian novelist and Arabic teacher, Amal Abo Saad, through her novel “There is no Time but for Love” take us to the world of love at a time of war through her protagonist “Leila”. However I do not deny my eagerness as I was running above the lines of the novel, and like any Syrian woman, craving to know whether love will succeed!

Exhibition of the artist Lynn Batal, boldness of idea and novelty of colors

Damascus, (ST) - With her female painting brush, in which she rebelled against reality and the spontaneously of her ideas, the plastic artist, Lynn Batal embodied her works in the art work space. Her paintings are a mixture of boldness and modernity at the level of both color and idea.

The exhibition, which opened in the artist's gallery, Fatih al-Mudares for Fine Art embodied a different experience in the field of women’s plastic art at the level of the style in which Batal returned to the primacy of the idea and color.

Batal told SANA that her use of a rudimentary style came in different colors considering that the paintings included in her gallery give impressions of the man's relationship with the female and the person's relationship with himself through using acrylic and inks.
