I believe that Fragments of Persephone will challenge the meanings behind the work created by women and shed light on contemporary art about women and femininity.
//Daliah Ammar is a nineteen-year-old Palestinian-American artist based in Chicago, IL and is currently earning her BFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The purpose of Daliah’s work is to transcend the notion of the self and the physicality of paint, resonating from her own vulnerable and personal experiences – as a means of conveying life as it blooms and decays from within. Expressing that awareness of the self and reflecting to the viewer establishes a relationship between themselves and herself. Daliah’s works are confrontational, yet, intimate and personal – using the painted surface as a trope for the physical and psychological presence between the inner self and external viewer.
