Rima Amyuni "Two in One"
Rima Amyuni’s latest series of works extends the theme of idyllic mountainous landscapes from
her last exhibition, Paradis Fleuris. The subject of this work is informed by the artist’s immediate
surroundings – her house, studio, and garden in the suburban town of Yarzé, Lebanon – but corresponds
to a state of mind rather than a particular place. Painted in oils and acrylics of radiating color, Yarzé, which is
only fifteen kilometers southeast of the city of Beirut, appears as a bucolic place far removed from the anxieties
and pressures of everyday life.
