About This Artwork

"The Cage series started after the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York.  I was associated with “Triangle Workshop”, founded by the artist Sir Antony Caro, and the association occupied the 92nd floor of the left tower… Then again, I was, symbolically, affected and scarred by the event. ​Today, here in Beirut, we are still living the after effects of the traumatic explosion of the Port. Another blast, yet, life and hope endure …​This series address notions of violence and exile, which is a central theme in my work. Yet, the expression of the paintings remains that of an attempt to sublimate these lived “concepts”, by offering openings and spaces of contemplation. ​This work is dedicated to all those who have endured and continue…  "
