Opening Reception: Zahra Marwan: Rose is a Rose is a Rose

July 5, 5:00 pm7:00 pm

Zahra Marwan’s dreamlike watercolors have always had a close relationship with the written word: the origin of her paintings is often a sparse yet evocative line of text. Born in Kuwait, Marwan is the author of Where Butterflies Fill the Sky (Bloomsbury Publishing NYC, 2022), which chronicles her family’s journey from Kuwait to Albuquerque, NM when she was a child, escaping discrimination in Kuwait where she and much of her family were considered stateless and were subject to open discrimination and discriminatory laws.

In her upcoming show at Hecho a Mano, Marwan’s skill for marrying language and art is evident in watercolor paintings centering roses and Arab poetry. Drawn from the seven Mu’allaqat—the ancient Suspended Odes that were hung in the Kaaba in Mecca and were so dear to the Arabs that they were written in gold—Marwan’s paintings evoke a feeling of awe and longing.
