BASED IN GAZIANTEP, TURKIEY, AND GRADUATED FROM ALEPPO UNIVERCITY, SYRIAN ARTIST RASHA KOMERY HAS WORKED FOR THE LAST TWELVE YEARS ON CREATING A PRACTICE CENTRED AROUND HER REALISTIC SURREALISM STYLE IN PAINTINGS.
Exhibiting locally and internationally, Rasha has devoted her practice to uncover the truth of reality through the style she embraces. With seeking perfection as a fundamental aspect: a sense of sleek precision is kept at the core of her practice.
Rasha's works explore the intimate notions of the self and society, the internal dialogues and the often-illusive concept. Common to all her work is the deferent angles of lighting that highlight her figures. Taking reference from the human soul, her highly detailed scenes presented by oil paint take surrealism inspiration. Using the familiar images to evoke a momentary recognition in the viewer, the themes in her paintings play with obscure symbolism, with an exploration of fantasy and ideas of dream-space.
