Helene Khoury Artist Statement

Education: Bachelor of Fine Art, Willem de Kooning Academy, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Although women have reached much by emancipation, still many are treated as inferior beings.

I am born In Beirut, Lebanon, live and work in The Netherlands. The women's rights and the female identity are the subject of my work whereby my experiences of life, emotion, daily news, and the status of the contemporary woman become source material in the creation of my art.

In my work I try to bring under attention the injustice that woman experiences. I do not search for a solution and I do not tell how it must be to improve her status. I just bring this conflict to the forefront in the hope that this contributes to the solution. What concerns me is the process of braking taboos and old traditions. The one time I am the strong woman who portrays her ideas without taking care of critics, and the other time my confrontation is more gentle. In both cases woman in my work is beautiful, elegant, soft, and strong without having a need for a man in her own field.

I do not aim at one material or technique. Although I find myself mostly in painting, this does not obstruct my creativity. I am continuously in search of new expression forms which can be the reason for me to realize an art work. Every material or technique calls for another approach, here I plunge into my feelings and let it loose.

I appreciate many artists but in the course of time I have found my own style. My work can not be placed under a certain flow but it shows my involvement with the feminism.
