Katara, the Cultural Village presents the ‘Between Structuralism and Gestal’ Exhibition by Shetha Faraj Abbo Al Numan. The exhibition which will open on 8th May, 7pm until the 9th June at Katara Gallery, Building 19, Katara, explores the relevance between Gestalt and structuralism in structuring the art composition.
‘Between Gestalt and Structuralism’ is a collection of paintings by Iraqi Armenian artist, Shetha Faraj Abbo Al Numan. From an academic artist family, Al Numan takes inspiration from her Iraqi and Armenian roots. She began her studies in Fine Arts where she took an interest in the positive and negative distribution of elements in the composition of an artwork. Her fascination with human art productions such as Gestalt and the Structuralism, which are contradicting theories, led her to the production of this exhibition.
Commenting on the exhibition, Sidonio Costa, Curator of Visual Arts Exhibitions and Educational Programs, Katara said: “This exhibition explores different themes through the cultural roots of the artist. Al Numan breathes life into the paintings through her unique use of color, creating some eye catching compositions. Katara is committed to providing a platform for talented artists and this exhibition is a testimonial of Katara’s commitment to educate and entertain whilst building cultural bridges.”
Katara Gallery has organized an educational workshop titled “Utilizing the positive and negative elements in art productions” hosted by the artist on the 24th of May 2012. Art enthusiasts are invited to join the walk through at 5pm. for more information please email: email@example.com.
