Geometrical shapes are always associated with particular connotations and symbols that are hard to subjugate to a structure as organic as that of the human body, let alone the female body with all the curves and grace it is distinguished with.
Today we are looking at an extremely unique experience in which artist Ahmed Abdel Tawwab offers an entirely different approach to geometrical shapes such as cones, triangles, and rectangles.
In this exhibition, Abdel Tawwab offers an exquisite collection of medium-sized bronze sculptures that pay tribute to the female body. The works displayed in this exhibition pose a number of questions about Abdel Tawwab's artistic techniques, on top of which is how he was able to express his emotions with such freedom through geometrical lines that are commonly known for their rigidity and lack of flexibility. More importantly, it is quite intriguing how he managed to do so without the least bit of pretense or exaggeration. His skill in taming a material as hard as bronze and dying it chemically to create the required dramatic effect for each individual work is quite astounding and so is his simultaneous ability to preserve the specificity of the material.
Abdel Tawwab deals in his exhibition with a wide range of topics related to women and does so without restrictions, which makes those works a manifestation of freedom and a celebration of women’s liberation.
