XVA Gallery presents “Redemptive Narratives and Migrating Patterns”, the second solo show of Samira Abbassy at XVA. The exhibition will show works on paper and oil paintings on gesso panel, from 2002 to 2016.
Abbassy describes her work as an excavation of art history and an exploration of the Self; a form of autobiographical self-portraiture that draws from tradition, history and culture, whilst simultaneously offering contemporary ideas and reminders to the viewer.
