“My art work varies between the expressionist, the symbolic, and the abstract. For me, the art work is always preceded by the idea, and is never random.
In my work on silent nature, I adopted simplicity in structure in order for the colour to be more prominent. In portraits, I focused on various being states especially in women. I wanted it to move the viewer from one mind state to another and allow for more than one interpretation depending on the viewer.”
Manya Al khamri:
Manya is an emerging Syrian artist who is currently experimenting with different materials. She holds a diploma in sculpture from the Institute of Applied Arts in Damascus, Syria.
“Nature is the main source of inspiration for me. I choose to capture rich nature scenes and I then infuse them with my own personal feelings.”
