I see my subjects as "malleable energies" with multiple emotions and states of mind that I can interpret as I please.
Mona graduated in English literature and is a self-taught artist who lives and works in Lebanon. Over the course of a year, she learned the fundamentals of pictorial technique from the Egyptian painter Mansour Ahmed. At the end of this apprenticeship in 1994, she organised her first solo exhibition at the Al Shamoa Gallery in Cairo. Three years later, after having profited from all the art forms at her disposal and having spent countless hours practicing with her paints and brushes, the young painter felt sufficiently experienced to chart her own course as an artist according to her own personal experiments and aspirations.
In her monograph published in 2011 entitled "Between Form and Formlessness", the artist talks about her journey and her painting, which is an exploration of the depths of the human soul as fertile ground which is also timeless and universal at the same time. Through her constant movement back and forth between figurative and abstract work, Mona builds fragments of stories that are part of a parallel reality based on the subconscious. Deeply inspired by the personalities as well as the works of artists Julian Schnabel (born in 1951), Anselm Kiefer (born in 1945) and Gustav Klimt (1862-1918), Mona in turn strives, through her works exclusively dedicated to the human figure, to reflect her own truth.
