Lina Gazzaz

"Art is my tool to allow the viewer to see beyond our objective conceptualization of reality, revealing the complexity imperceptible by our senses. Through the act of painting, that precise moment of inspiration and creativity allows the represented subject to break with its perceptible form, color, and spatiality. The subject thus explodes into a reality, which is unmediated by pure rationality. Whether the basic elements are derived from nature, facts, or ideas, each work can be viewed as an attempt to re-inject the emotional, imaginary, and illogical to reveal the limits of human knowledge and perception."

Born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Lina Gazzaz is an artist based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. She received her Bachelor of Studio Arts Degree from Meredith College, Raleigh, North Carolina. She has participated in multiple solo and group exhibitions in Saudi Arabia, the United States, Lebanon, the UK and the UAE and received the Painting Award at the Prophet Mohammed Festival in Dubai. Her artwork engages the figurative, experimental, and Islamic in a critically contemporary manner. She mostly works with Chinese ink on watercolor paper, ink, pastel, and oil.

She is currently working on multiple projects; collage, urban sculpture and movie clips.
