VEILED REALITY - SOUAD MARDAM BEY 14-05-2013

Sound Mardam Bey’s canvases are otherworldly: Layers of colours and intricate details adorn androgynous characters from another time. A world of fantasy that’s full of emotion, her figures gaze back at you with watery, soulful eyes, and question your existence with a calm stare. Souad Mardam Bey’s oversized canvases are full of texture, and her figures are always dressed in some form of ethnic attire embellished with exquisite designs and patterns, almost always accompanied by fish, birds or cats. Of Syrian origins and currently residing in Cairo, one can see how Souad draws from her many living experiences in the Middle East, with its symbols and traditional textures as well as her rejection of the typical approach to gender and suppressed dialogue. Are these figures from the past or the future? Are they reaching out to us to tell us something?

With her latest works in "Let's Talk", Souad's pieces are more elaborate yet clear, more forward yet soft. They yearn towards a sense of simplicity: her people are urging us to speak, to them as well as to each other. Each one of her figures holds a gaze tha anticipates a conversation. The artist's need for dialogue and an exchange of thoughts, ideas and hope is tangible in her latest collection of artworks, and she leaves us no choice but to listen and converse.
