About

"The Golden World" from Nefertiti - The Golden Queen series, 2019 51” x 43” inch 130 x 109 cm * * * NEFERTITI * * * “Nefertiti” is a major solo exhibition by one of the most respected figurative painters in Egypt, Hossam Dirar. The show features Dirar’s latest collection of oil paintings over large- scale canvases. This powerful collection of works is a modern take of the artist on the elegant and mysterious beauty of the Ancient Egyptian queen Nefertiti. “Nefertiti” is translated as “The Beautiful One Has Come” but the word “nefer” means more than just beauty. It can also be translated as “goodness” and “perfection”. Nefertiti would empower women to take a stand for their beliefs. She would encourage women to move out of the shadow. In this series, Dirar also attempts to challenge the modern woman’s status quo by quoting the queen’s headdress on today’s women in contemporary attire, accessories, and posture. Dirar’s vision is one of reckoning: through his work, he wishes to encourage today’s Egyptian woman to regain if only a fraction of the glory they once had in the past, same as the ancient Egyptian queen and goddess have had. His women are painted with dignity and pride, treading the line between the glorious past and the hopeful future of the Egyptian woman. His technique is impressionistic: the organized chaos of brushstrokes that appear wild and textured at close inspection yet controlled and defined from a further stance. A palette of colorful florals against shades of grey, the paintings show bursts of color in a subdued background- to mirror bursts of hope in our present mode of life. “Nefertiti” is an exciting exhibition of paintings that hope to inspire the glorification of the Egyptian woman once more. * * * ABOUT THE ARTIST * * * Hossam Dirar is an Egyptian contemporary artist based in Barcelona, Spain.
