    About this artwork

    Instantly recognizable for its powerful use of colour and subject matter, which includes a typical residence built in idyllic surroundings and shrouded by trees, this signed and dated work relays both the artist’s affection for her homeland and her unerring ability to capture it on canvas. The brushstrokes and angles give the work an intensity, liveliness and dynamism, reminding us of the complex and inter-dependent relationship that exists between nature and man on this earth that we share.
    Born in Beirut, Rima Amyuni graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from the Byam Shaw School of Art in London, which is today part of Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, before continuing her studies at Columbia University in New York City. She moved back to Lebanon during the war. In 1995, Amyuni was awarded the first prize in painting by Sursock Museum in Lebanon and has held several solo exhibitions. Her art often depicts her beloved Yarzé, where she lives and works, with the tranquillity relayed belying the village’s proximity to the city.
