About

"Reproach" Painting 51" x 59" inch by Hend EL Falafly GLOW All of the works in this collection depict the symbiotic exchange of energy between the female and the butterfly. Butterflies catch on the enticing scent of the spiritual essence of all of nature’s creations from flowers to humans and travel from faraway places, resting delicately on different parts of the women’s bodies, to gather and inhale their beautiful scent. As the female part of any plant, Hend expresses these women as flowers themselves; ones that these butterflies seek out, and in turn the women reflect the golden light of the butterflies. Their glowing color seemingly captures the spiritual integrity of these women; the light of God, purity, peace, and their innate connection with Mother Nature expressed in the synergetic relationship between these women and their butterflies. We feel there is a continuous flow of energy exchange throughout this exhibition. Hend employs a newly experimented palette in serene monotone earthen tones, a departure from her previous bold blacks, yellows, and reds. She demonstrates an excelled development in her play of light and shadow on the faces of these women, and the gazes of her subjects mirror this newfound earthen palette, as they are at once softer yet deeper. There is a more intimate revealing of and connection to, these women’s expressions and emotion which she achieves through a refined and textured anatomical precision and realism using hundreds of pencils lines as her base, along with the application of golden butterflies which she adorns her characters with as though they were a natural part of their being. Above all, it is this intangible exchange of mystical, temporal, and kinetic energy between the kindred spirits of women and butterflies that creates an enlightening glow, both physically and spiritually.
