With her keen eye for vibrant colors she uses her known symbols, such as the eye, heart, flowers and the crescent moon, to showcase her love for optimism in all of its forms. Seeking inspiration from her surroundings, Al Essa manages to grasp the positive from her everyday life and paint it on canvas. In her acrylic message the eye symbolizes the reflective mirror to life and serves as an emotional barometer, while the heart stands for sympathy, love and affection. The flowers are the harbingers of positivity and icons of happiness. Finally, the crescent moon symbolizes the arrival of optimist energy and metaphorically equates the force of gravity with passionate attraction.
Afaf Al Essa is a Kuwaiti artist at the beginning of her career, considers herself a forever-student to the subject and has chosen to take this journey a step further by attending courses, the last of which was at St. Martin’s College for Fine Arts in London.
Exhibition will continue until November 7, 2013
