Winning artwork in the category mixed media 4th international emerging artist award, Dubai,
curator and artdirector Rebia Naim.
A deep wound, – not bleeding, but being ‘nurtured’ by the veins that are running into it. This work explores the difficulty of letting go and of theresulting pain and suffering. Detached from reality, emotional distress has become a theatre in which old pain is being restaged, creating an endless cycle of suffering.
But there is also another possible outcome: these surface wounds canbecome the bearer of opportunity and hopefully result in disburdening one’s emotional baggage, allowing us to walk on light-footed.
