Opportunity to jump out
World of buses and subway wagons is the world of travel and transportation, with a crowded space and sobering. The doors are opened, everyone left humanity behind the door and got on it. Merged with other. The Place of merging all people in different social level, without even the less communication and social behavior among eachother. Seems they suffered metamorphosis, each “gari goori samsa,” ghastly terrible and strange thathidden under the burden of life, surrounded by exhausted silence and frustrated.
Hani Najm’s artworks illustrated this loneness and metamorphosis by the visual report that dramatic scene happened in a public transport. A play without a dialog,some people with closed and opened eyes, tiredfaces,occasionally people who have been looked in aconvex lens, exaggerated their inner pain, replaced by high-pressure warnings privacy is filed. And Hani Najm warn and alert in the area of transportation and transport, in particular expression form conveyed from the subject. The expression with the cover of critical thinking and making unfamiliar.
Hani Najm impartedhis artwork style from expressionist painting style, deformed shapes and colors use certain features of sharp contrasts, malaise in society, and similar spaces, bus.trying to show that the situation is certainly not good, and even ill-alarming. In some forms, full of laughter and anxiety and apathy in some sort of condition that may be a natural consequence “Escape from Freedom” and responsibility.
Undoubtedly Hani Najm, in his artwork. There are some concepts and go either communication or human behavior, and human existence are different ways to express sadness colors and lines of “life” has, and the alienation of modern life is reflected in his works. Alienation from the natural world, the body alienation, alienation from people. Each character in this artwork seems they are “morso” in the “stranger” novel who is jumped out and has illustrated in Hani Najm’s artwork and with this modernity diseasecaught some symptoms such as metamorphosis like samsa-character in stranger novel-.
Although communicationconcerns him and keep different forms of existence, infirst sight his artwork is like an ugly duckling that in the path of meditation and audience cognitive processes transform into a beautiful swan. You should Pause for a moment and think about the deformed shapes with no judgment because his artwork is not like another artwork. You should bare your mind and force yourself to think deeply about his artworks. The main feature of these paintings is the thoughts behind them,Beautiful like the indecency of an initial instinct nakedness .His paintings are like children painting,naked and honest.
You can’t judge his artworks by cursory glance you should look deeply think contemplatively and by looking his artwork achieve the vision and insight.
