Abstract painting is my passion. I started drawing and painting in high school and continued at various Parisian studios to master my technique.
Painting for me is synonymous with freedom and holds cathartic powers. I begin a painting with spontaneous movement and move to elaborate upon the composition, without knowing how the final result will look. Like a ballet, it’s a choreography that unfolds; colours, lines and spaces communicating between each other and starting to whisper or exclaim their story.
The continuous search involved in painting abstracts, by playing with the infinite possibilities of colours, shapes, and compositions’ combinations is a source of joy.
For me, the most important element in an abstract painting is the colours’ vibrations, and how they interact.
Abstract art is not a mathematical science. There is an open window where the artist’s intentions and emotions can be shared to the viewer. I deeply appreciate the unique interpretation of each viewer of a specific piece of abstract art.
Since my early childhood I have been surrounded by the art of my grandfather, Georges Daoud Corm, an important figure in Lebanese Art History. I recently revisited some of his works that I presented in an exhibition called “Dialogue, remembrance of the past”. I was born in Beirut and raised in Paris where I studied History, History of Art and Cultural Heritage management and worked for various private and public cultural institutions.
I have been living in Cyprus since 2012 with my husband and our three children. It is thanks to the sweet life of Aphrodite’s Island and the therapeutic energy of the Mediterranean Sea that I find a constant source of inspiration, and the time to dedicate myself to my passion, painting.
