Marianne – Institut français, Khartoum, Sudan
These paintings are all about human attitude, behaviour, reactions, emotions, characters and appearance. What people hide in themselves and how the artist can see it and turns it into layers of colours so it can be seen through a painting. All human issues matter to art forever and a day. All these postures and faces in this exhibition are prepared to let people wonder and question themselves: are they glad or sad, complicated or simple.
The artist asks his- or herself the same questions when he or she observes people. Building a healthy community and understanding human behaviour is the basis to achieve a better version of humanity in our world. The use of various wild colours shows the strength of people’s impressions in daily life. And using layers of oil colours is a technique to express the hidden emotions and take us beyond the lines to the depth of a person’s spirit. As a human who happened to be an artist, I invite you to see and react with every picture and colour.
Feel free to experience the life story for every person in my paintings.
