About Abeer Elkhateb
My work represents a mixed of reflections of deferent elements, areas and layers. where a dreamy world full of love, abundance, happiness, humanity and harmonious relationship with the nature and the planet Earth The Universe and the complicity in it's content was and still the biggest dynamo behind my work.. questions like where it ends? What is space? who are we and why are we here? is our universe open or close? that made me inventing a new dimension on canvas. a dimension with single point where all the elements are moving toward it, or moving around it. The Human kind is my second motive. Since ever I can remember, questions of why do we love? and what are we able to do to show and practice love, where is the difference between love and sex? love and friendship, can I show love in my art work? can I find a new formula or position of love expressions? Landscape and urban life are the third dimension in my work. The impact of this dimension on our behavior is so powerful, that many of us became totally different within one of the environment than the other. I'm using my observation to reflect this behavior in relative content to the painting architecture. Gravity is the fourth element in my paintings. Since I was a child, in my dreams I always see myself flying.. every-time.. dream after dream. I visit beautiful cities and angels all around.. people\ angels are save and in harmony.. no pain no sorrow and because of those dreams I started using wings in my work. It helps me composing my figures and deploying them in a gravity loss positions. With my art I feel as if I'm always in a discovery trip. the world and myself.
