Save The Date

By Rasha M. @my_vitrina
Save The Date Gallery Ward is proud to present Egyptian Beliefs, the first solo exhibition in Dubai for renowned Egyptian artist Adel Tharwat.Organized by Ehab Ellaban, this exhibition highlights iconic concepts, style, and imagery of Tharwat's representations of Egyptian culture.The artist's bold and vibrant figures and sceneries are charged with noble understanding of a rich heritage and deep awe to forefathers of all civilisations that shaped modern Egyptian life we know today.The paintings tell combinations of stories through obvious and subtle associations of elements from old tales, popular myths, and melodious hymns that have survived and become uniquely encrypted in Egyptian memories. Although the artist derives inspiration and incorporates images from history, he maintains a completely modern perspective in contexualising his visions.Thus the works reveal new meanings to symbols manifested in objects (like the key), forms (like triangles), texts, or postures and features of his figures that are reminiscent of Pharaonic monuments and murals.Tharwat's surreal settings raise new aesthetic implications, in terms of colour, composition and angles, use of space, and conceptual presumptions, bringing forth an experience that drives viewers to use their imagination in order to make sense of and complete the stories presented.
