The works are an insight into the privacy of someone you will never forget. The Lebanese artist and storyteller plays with quotes, fonts and colorful imagery to express and document her inevitable emotions, “people don’t understand how much they express”. The pages she considers “ugly” are often covered in black paint. In providing her with a healing process to her own ideas and thoughts, the books have become essential to her everyday. There is no escape from the emotional rollercoaster Diana needs to express, “have a safe trip”.Thoughts by Anna Hugo
The books will be on display from March 3, 2016 on.
