Folded Canvases

Shaqayeq Arabi

March 2010

In an artistic career spanning the last two decades, Shaqayeq Arabi has alternated her creative style between abstract and evocative paintings on canvas with tactile, three-dimensional structures and installations. Her artworks are often created using a variety of materials, from plastic bottles and newspapers to used wallpapers and found items sourced from various industrial and urban areas. In Folded Canvases, she recycles her old paintings, reshaping them and transforming them into new cultural forms.
