The idea of time and place is the stimulant to review life in another new artistic way. And memory is what stored inside us from the existing constant and moving things. There is no doubt that there are times in our lives that influences us whether we are conscious or unconscious; they motivate us to work in a particular project aiming to regain them.
The study of portrait started in a very early stage; it has inspired man long ago and still has its inspiring influence on us till now. The theme of this exhibition focuses on a particular time through the idea of 'Memory and Portrait'. It represents some characters of the 1960s and of the past century which are engraved in my memory. I tried to reform those characters through a new modern prospective. This way depends on external embodiment of some of those 1960s characters, through researching the chemical compound of the oil paint, in addition to the influence of those characters on me as an artist and on the memory of the time.
I am so glad to present my humble experiment in Gallery Meem in UAE, and I do hope that the oriental colours would bring you back to the memory of the beautiful time.
