EXHIBITION "FACES"

MOHAMAD OMRAN

Since the beginning of his career Mohamad Omran has considered the theme of the “tortured human body” as his main subject. The human in his works transforms to a deformed monster, it becomes a metaphor of an imagined animal/beast. With the outbreak of events in Syria in March 2011, he started a series of drawings reflecting violence and daily death. Mohamad Omran started to work on the theme of “Waiting” in 2015: silent bodies wearing sunglasses as if not being able to see, sitting steadily in their eternal places staring dull-witted at us. In his work “Faces” which is an extension of “Waiting”; the repeated face becomes the essential element.
