Mirrors of the past to look at the future

For ‘Maryam Al Amri’ and ‘Asma Kalaib’ the canvas is their way of talking about the traditions of the past in a modern way. In the exhibition “Poems full of colour” opened yesterday under the auspices of the Diwan of the Royal Court and the Sultan Qaboos Higher Center for Culture and Science in the headquarters of the Omani Society for Fine Art in Auqad- Salalah-Dhofar, mixed media, forms and colors show us that the past can lead the new younger generation into the future. For ‘Maryam’ the Alphabet as used in the Holy Qu’ran and the shape of architectural forms are her way to talk about the past, the present and the future. The portraits of ‘Asma’ give a glimpse about the past but also about the trust the persons have in the present and the future. For both it is very clear: “without knowing your past there is no future.”
