About This Artwork
Raouda’s bright and vivacious canvases radiate warmth and positivity as she expresses her love of nature through abstract forms. Marco Tonelli writes, “Rana Raouda’s painting undoubtedly turns towards a subtle and tenuous line where the artist transforms her inner vision into an autonomous, hypersensitive substance, with implications and aspirations of an obvious spirituality. She thus places herself on the historical side of abstract expressionism, which has seen extreme and oscillating attitudes between the tragic and frantic gestures of a Pollock and the inaction painting of a Rothko or a Newman, where the iconoclastic apparition opened the doors wide to mystical and sacred settings and visions …Raouda is still disposed to believe that one can reactivate the pure, beautiful and ‘untouchable’ substance (this is the Latin meaning of the term ‘sacer’) whose noise and chaos of the contemporary world (schizophrenic debtor of images) make a term incomprehensible and irrelevant.”
Rana Raouda is a prominent Lebanese painter born in Beirut in 1961. She graduated in 1983 with a BFA from LAU and continued her studies at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington D.C. and The Monoprint Workshop in New Mexico. She has successfully showcased her work internationally at solo and group exhibitions. In 1997 she was awarded the young artist award for the XXI Salon d’Automne at the Sursock Museum. In 2007 she received the first prize in Ornans-France and in Montreux-Switzerland. Her work is displayed in public and private collections; St Elias Church Kantari - Beirut, An Nahar, and is part of the permanent collection of the Sursock Museum.
