Reflections is a solo exhibition from the Syrian artist Besher Koshaji. In his most recent collection of works, Besher’s subject matter has shifted from landscape to faces of his lost past, faces of his influencers and lovers. He contrasts his carefully constructed layering with serene solid planes to bring focus as to why he distorts his figures. The artist explains that it is an attempt to rebuild what has fallen of Syria and to bring back to his sad memories some light and happiness, by placing vivid colours of hope amidst his confusion and despair.
The Workshop is a new, two-floor, multi-concept space. The ground floor contemporary art gallery exhibits regional and international artists.
