WF Artists : Riham Ghassib

Born in Amman and studying Art in the United States, Ghassib has participated in numerous exhibitions in the region and abroad. Her earlier works focused on social satire, but between 1994 and 2009 constitutes a turning point in Ghassib’s work as an artist. Being more open to the magic of nature has contributed a great deal to the development of her work. A selected palette has helped produce a system of color harmony, which has enabled her to penetrate the beauty and appropriate the aesthetic secrets of nature; its fabulous colors, shades and lights. The paintings are becoming an increasingly accurate record of her intense passion for nature.
