AMMAN — Believing in the “special link” between nature, emotions and feminine beauty, Jordanian artist Hanada Khataybeh is showcasing that relationship in her work at an art exhibition that opened on Saturday.

The exhibition, held in Amman, depicts a representation of emotions and their impact on the human mind and natural elements, according to Khataybeh. 

“It is the perception of fading into an imaginary world while [being] rooted in reality,” the artist said.

Khataybeh says her work captures moments, while shining the light on the link between nature and fantasy through the sensual appearance of feminine beauty.

“Through using elements of nature and connecting them to human emotions, the viewer and artist travel to another universe,” she told The Jordan Times at the exhibition, which concludes Thursday.

Most of the pieces of acrylic, pastel colours and coloured pencils on canvas depict women and elements from nature such as butterflies and fish.

“I leave the conclusion to the viewers. They can travel with the art piece and analyse it according to their personal view,” she added.

“As a female artist, I emphasised feminine sensuality in my paintings to show the magnificence of being a female,” the artist continued.


Commenting on the recent trends in art, Khataybeh said new art movements depend more on “video art” and using more technology; however, she argued that artists are neglecting the “realistic” and “classic art”.
