Sally Khoury

I liked Sally Khoury’s work because in the first place I am a supporter of Women’s right and her artwork reflects the character of the strong women. Her art work is aggressively bold and yet alluring in all its femininity. Her work is both fun and feminine. She mixes fashion and pop culture. Her work expands the understanding of women and defining them. She says her work questions the current definitions of Arab women and defining them. ” I would hate to think that the women are only portrayed as docile, traditional and subservient or oppressed.

The diagonal lines of the grid gives it an imposing character where as the bright green, bright blue,makes it more living as much as the yellow orange and red gives the painting a certain energetic influence.
