Paintings by award winning Lebanese artist Annie Kurkdjian are being showcased at Albareh Gallery in Adliya.
The exhibition, Enchained Dyads, focuses on two main themes central to human condition; life and death.
Born in Lebanon in 1972, Ms Kurkdjian was deeply affected by the Lebanese Civil War as a child and recognises her art as a form of self-therapy.
“I am very happy to exhibit my work in Bahrain, it is a dear country to me because it welcomed me and my art since 2013,” Ms Kurkdjian told the GDN.
This is Ms Kurkdjian’s third solo exhibition in Bahrain and was organised as part of the Spring of Culture festival.
“I always thought that pain is the most urgent feeling which needs expression,” she said.
“I discovered that love, is equally, a condition that urges an expression.
“It is a huge, universal feeling which is in constant movement and needs to be expressed, needs to be created over and over all the time in new forms.”
The exhibition will continue until April 22, from 10am to 2pm and from 4pm to 8pm Saturday to Thursday.
