ZAKARIA RAMHANI AND JACQUES VARTABEDIAN 2016

ARTSPACE Gallery Hosts Exclusive Exhibition for Zakaria Ramhani and Jacques Vartabedian titled Re-Flect. September 2016 - The prestigious Dubai-based ARTSPACE Gallery will hold an exhibit for Moroccan Artist Zakaria Ramhani and Lebanese-Armenian Artist Jacques Vartabedian. The exhibition will launch the new art season ahead for ARTSPACE. ARTSPACE is committed to the promotion of modern and contemporary Middle Eastern art and artists.

Zakaria Ramhani was born in Tangier in 1983. The son of a painter, he discovered very early the different painting techniques in his father’s studio. Deeply influenced by the way the religious conservatives criticized his father for making figurative art, Zakaria Ramhani chose to use and transform the Islamic tradition of calligraphy, whose abstract nature allowed artists to avoid violating the prohibition against figurative representation. Zakaria Ramhani got his diploma to become a fine art teacher in Tangier in 2003, and worked as a teacher, before giving up his work to devote himself entirely to his paintings. In his own words he speaks very candidly about his work:

FATIHA ZEMMOURI 2016

April 2016 - The prestigious Dubai-based ARTSPACE Gallery will hold an exhibit for Moroccan Artist Fatiha Zemmouri titled Vibrations. Artspace is committed to the promotion of modern and contemporary Middle Eastern art and artists.Born in 1966, visual artist Fatiha Zemmouri is a graduate of the Casablanca School of Fine Arts. Very early in her career she developed interest in materials such as coal, burnt wood, ceramic, and porcelain.

Fatiha uses each alteration of matter to grow closer to the deeper being. Combustion, laceration, stitching, burning: all steps through which the matter is transformed to reveal itself as it is. Upon completion, the abstractions carry the memory of the black or white monochrome; and the matter, a metaphor of the body, reveals itself to be a life force.
