GAZBIA SIRRY EXHIBITION "TIME & PLACE 2012"

ZAMALEK ART GALLERY is hosting Gazbia Sirry's exhibition "TIME & PLACE 2012", the exhibition is including 12 paintings dated 2011.

This exhibition comprising Gazbia Sirry's latest artworks are highlighted by a special kind of synergy that is both positive and expressive. In fact this feature has undoubtedly added an enriching value to the artist's previous work.

Abbreviation is the new trait characterizing this exhibition where "less is more". This is clearly apparent in the use of colors. As well as in the human forms. The figures are more elongated making them look tall and dignified. In addition, what we notice is the bold and distinct colors which highly contribute to give more strength and clarity to the art work. This trait is also clear in large white spaces which reflect a sense of solidity and intensity.

This collection of artworks mirrors Gazbia Sirry's reaction to the current situation in her beloved Egypt... as always she "has poured all her emotions" on the canvas, keeping as ever a bright vision of Egypt full of hope and optimism.


Naheda El Khoury, ZAMALEK ART GALLERY, December 2011.

Gazbia Sirry is a painter who embraces life with her unique creativity, extensive culture and human entity. She had an objective, and she set out a difficult road to achieve this objective. She does not paint, but rather pours her soul, talent, intelligence onto the canvas. She was born to be the conscience of the nation with its hopes and pains, joys and grief...

Throughout all stages of her career, Gazbia's painting has been recognized as first-rate dramatic work, which allows the viewer to receive the message through clear forms, symbol and polished formulation. Moreover, her works appeal to the viewer's emotions and imagination, and pulls them into both her inner world, full of tension and overwhelming emotions, and the mythical world of her painting that fully engulfs the truth.


Moukhtar Al-Attar, Art Critic, Ibda' Magazine, No 7, July 1994, Cairo.

Her paintings reveal - to an unusual degree - the tide of change in modern Egypt and the ambivalent feelings that it can produce in the artist. One also gets the sense of Gazbia's interweaving of her personal and the political, and her commitment to always pushing the boundaries of each.
