Fathi’s new works balance colour and layers of text in an exploration of an illegible calligraphic language. Through her distinctly personalized style, she continues to demonstrate her dexterity using the simplicity of the line.

For her fourth solo exhibition at The Third Line and beginning the fall season, Fathi will present a selection of light boxes and works on paper. She began working with light boxes in 2007 while seeking an alternative to her previous works on canvas. This exhibition also sees her return to working on paper, a medium which offers a sense of vulnerability as the brushes stroke the surface of the blank page.
