Samah Shihadi: Spellbound

The 2018 Haim Shiff Prize for Figurative-Realist Art

Samah Shihadi's  (b. 1978) starting point is her family’s experience as a representative of the Palestinian people's traumatic history and its vanishing traditions. She offers a feminist view of place and identity and on women's status, especially in Arab culture. s perfectly executed drawings, Shihadi's encompassed in a veil of mystery, are delicately exhilarating. Her peaceful works are imbued with a criticism of logic, order, occupation, of religion's role in art and of women’s role in society.
