Artist Neamat El Diwany inaugurates her solo exhibition Dialogue Continued this month at the Gezira Art Center. The collection presents more than 70 contemplative imaginary dialogues between a girl and a companion bird. Drawing on her inner world, the artist employs techniques, textures and color relations that add poetic visions and fantasies to her work. El Diwany is a graduate of John Cabott University in Rome and later pursued art studies at artist El Razzaz’s studio and at the Accademia d’Arte in Florence.

Randa Shaath is known for her lucid black and white photographs that document the daily life of Cairo residents, and the rapid transformations that the city has witnessed over the last decade or so. In her latest exhibition entitled Indelible, Shaath asks: when does one feel at home? Shaath explores this question through a suite of more than forty color photographs that she has been working on for the last two years. She takes her camera inside the homes of family and friends and acknowledges ordinary and familiar objects, moments, and spaces that we often overlook, granting them a grace that evokes the people that breath life into them. Light and shadow animate objects and spaces alike. Images are shot with a natural light that induces a soft atmospheric mood: brightness seeping through the slats of traditional wooden shutters, a flowery shadow of an iron grill cast against a yellowing wall, a dancing reflection of the sun bouncing off shiny white bathroom tiles. Many of the images resemble 19th century realist paintings in their depictions of everyday life, and in the interplay between darkness and light.

In a simple language and stenographic characters, Sabah Naim creates a charming and ambiguous world,” says acclaimed artist Mohamed Abla, describing the primitively composed flowers Naim features in her works. “Such simple flowers are how Sabah writes her mystic scripts about common merits between creatures despite the severe disparity and difference of trees, palm trees, sky, and stars.” Gazing at the Sky is Naim’s second exhibition.
