Jordanian collage artist Zaina El-Said latest exhibition is all set to open at The Workshop in Jumeirah, Dubai. The exhibition is curated by Fann A Porter and will run from the 7th February to the 6th March. Titled "Goddesses and Metaphors" the exhibition will showcase twenty-two of Zaina's mixed-media works from two collections, “Expressions of Life” and “Sahara Goddesses".

Zaina El-Said works with collage techniques to bring together different elements, textures, and patterns. As a result, within the works, she collates ideas and diversity. Her works are colorful, surreal and a delight to get lost in.

“My upbringing was divided between a tribal/military atmosphere as well as artists and designers. Thus, my artwork followed a similar pattern. In my work, a central character (hero or authority figure) leads the work and is interwoven within a story of patterns, ideas, architecture, and details that belong to completely different origins. I focus on creating harmony through differences and create oneness from contrast of color and ideas to convey the importance of transcending differences if one is to focus on beauty” – Zaina El-Said.

Zaina is an accomplished emerging artist. She has exhibited in Russia and Jordan, as well as being commissioned by collectors from Egypt, London and Istabul.
