ZAINEB SHABAN

Beyond Borders: an Exhibition of Fine Art From Canada
October 10 - October 30, 2014
Reception: Thursday October 16, 2014 6-8 PM

Characterized by sculptural depth of pigment, architectonic grooves and radiant hues, contemporary Canadian artist Zaineb Shaban’s 3D acrylic on canvas paintings are a visual pleasure to behold. Incorporating a variety of techniques and media – layers, gold leaf, texture, mosaic and modeling paste – serves to enhance the multi-dimensionality of the paintings. Influenced heavily by her work as an architect, Shaban’s visual art is a revelation concerning the relationship between nature and culture, and how the two transform one another over time. Having evolved from early work rendering traditional scenes of socio-cultural significance, in her current oeuvre Shaban tackles issues of human temporality and transcendence, and in the artist’s own words, the “symbolic conscientiousness of material culture.” Using visual representation of architecture as a “bridge across time,” this work is grounded in a type of utopian futurity fusing a diversity of socio-cultural views.

Canadian artist Zaineb Shaban has received diplomas in Architecture, Interior Design and Environment & Energy from prestigious universities in Canada and the UK. A fulltime visual artist since 2012, she has exhibited work professionally throughout Canada.
