Palestinian artist Nabil Anani paints landscapes of Palestine without the current-day disruption. Anani creates colourful representations of the Palestine of his dreams, each inspired by his childhood, which was spent in the hilly town of Halhoul.
The exhibition features the imaginary journey of artist Nabil Anani through the Palestinian landscape. He represents the land as a prosperous thriving place free from occupation; a land that takes pride in its nature and parades it jubilantly; a dream worth to pursuit. He creates the Palestine of his dreams, a utopia inspired by his memories as a child growing up on the hills of Halhoul.
Whether he attempts to capture a moment in the future or protest at the brutal Israeli destruction of the land and the livelihood of its people, Anani offers a vision of a better future; a dream of an ideal Palestine worthy of pursuing.
Using natural media including dried flowers, straws and spices, the series of paintings evoke a rural, dream-like ambience.
