"Hikayat", which means "stories" in Arabic, is the theme of Green Art Gallery's latest exhibition. Upon entering the show, the viewer will be struck by the gallery's back wall painted in a dark maroon colour and aligned with a variety of differently sized framed artworks. The subject matter portrayed within these works is particularly evocative of family and village life. One particular work of a woman rendered in an abstract physical form stands out. She extends her arms up to the sky as if in surrender - or perhaps more simply, as a gesture to the sky for more rainfall. Entilted "Thirst", the piece, which was completed in 1980, is an intimate and emotional work by Syrian artist Mahmoud Hammad.
