Meet Great Contemporary Iraqi Plastic Artists

by Yasin T. al- Jibouri,Layla Murad Sarhan

Young creative and innovative impressionist artist Yaqeen Shadhan

al-Dulaimi recently held her first solo exhibition under the title

“Dreams in the horizon” in which she adopts three main themes:

mankind, life, and death.

 

It is clear that three themes have dominated most of Yaqeen's

paintings, yet she uses her extreme artistic senses in employing them

over the surfaces of her paintings to bring out in the end a different

image to each. Thus we find the curved land, the colorful sky and

the human being cleverly symbolized in each tableau so as to reflect

a number of realistic thoughts engulfed with surrealistic shades.

At the first look, the viewer is taken by the dreamful atmospheres of

her fantasy world; however, a careful look would soon reveal how

near to our daily life Yaqeen's themes are.

 

The graduation of colors in Yaqeen's paintings has played an

integral role in conveying the kind of meaning she aspires, added to

the reflection of light that will eventually result in forming the

horizon. Artist Yaqeen Shadhan al-Dulaimi revealed once to an Iraq

daily newspaper the feeling she poured in her paintings saying,

"What concerns me mostly is how to embody the concept of balance

in relation to man and woman.”

Nearly all of the women in Yaqeen's paintings are gazing upwards as if looking for something. "All that we achieved are the out come of the dream, as my women do never stop dreaming.
