A solo exhibition by Ehab Ellaban on the works of Egyptian photographer Ayman Lotfy, “Her” marks as an attempt to create with a lens and other artistic methods, the sentiments that lie behind the eyes of an observer, as a look inwards towards oneself. Ayman Lotfy presents blended photography with other art forms such as body painting and theatrical effects such as lighting.
Gallery Ward focuses on presenting mainly contemporary Egyptian art as an important representation in influential Arab art and the dialogue surrounding it at the present day.
Arab art is now observing an era of exceptional attention. By transcending geographical limitations and political boundaries, Arab art is poised to become a key player in the discourse that activates global art production today.
Gallery Ward is committed to bring about the best and showcase multifaceted and compelling artistic production regionally and internationally while ensuring a supportive environment and platform from which works of art from the Arab world.
Lotfy presents his art by exploring the common surreal nature of raw human expression with “Her” in the direction of genuine human emotion. A subject that is chosen persistently by artists from all over the world. He presents blended photography with theatrical backdrops and artistic composition rendered complete by ultimately capturing specific moments of human expression.
