Art By Noura
My art has taken myriad forms over the years, but the inspirations have remained the same. Artists such as Tamara de Lempicka, Chagall, Warhol, Klimtt and the Pre-Raphaelites, have deeply shaped my artistic style and the way I feel compelled to create.
The works you see on these pages utilize a wide variety of objects from the world around us, and each part that contributed to the creative process has a memory of its own, one that has organically metabolized into an artwork. Whether it’s the ephemeral folds of fabric bent over wire mesh sculptures to capture fleeting stills of our lives, a pre-loved memento that has redeemed another lifetime within a canvas, or the shed bark of a toppled tree, the pieces tell stories that have different interpretations to the beholder.
With most of my artwork, I endeavor to recycle and embed as much content from our daily lives into the pieces I create. This I do in part to help shoulder mother nature’s burden that consumerism continues to birth, but mostly to preserve little memories and cherished keepsakes of our being that are otherwise perishable.
I seldom give my artwork a name, unless it’s part of a series that tackles a concept or challenges a perception. It is a deliberate choice on my part not to imprint my very personal journey on the viewer’s own way of experiencing the artwork and how they forge their own unique connection to it.
