15-5-97Najia Mehadji
A subjective view of the Dome
Darat al Funun is hosting an art exhibition from 13th May to 12th June, on the theme of the "dome" by the Paris-based Moroccan artist Najia Mehadji.
Mehadji's painting technique is simple,yet full of nuances.She first leaves prints on the canvas from a white-painted sheet by large arm gestures and then glues the collages previously painted in black.The glue is colored and the stains left by the pressure of the hand on the canvas are not removed,but blurred with fingers.
