Tajalliyat by NAZIR NAB’AA

The gallery opening was a retrospective exhibition for one of the most impotent pioneer’s Syrian artist NAZIR NAB’AA. "Some of the effects of the revisions to the conceptual parameters of the Syrian artistic practices in the period may be tracked in the career of painter Nazir Nabaa. His delicate canvases not only portray the beauty of woman, but also symbolize woman's eternal strength and power. His women are frozen in some symbolic position of a remembered state of power as in ancient icons and statues. Often the entire background is a textured field of cloth, randomly strewn. His fascination with texture and material is not limited to women's costumes but often portrays the land. He seems fascinated with contrast. Nabaa’s themes are chosen from childhood memories, although influenced by his training in Paris and Egypt. His early works portrayed loneliness or isolation of imagery much like that ofde Chirieo. From this he has developed a unique style in which delicacy of technique and contrasting imagery weave a subtle statement drawn from ancient, Pre-Raphaelite and modern influences.”
