Artist Dana Rousan
A particular sensation is born when art and design cross paths. These sensations are reflected – and refracted – through artworks that narrate a specific moment and its associated sensual reflections. Dana Rousan breaks through contemporary art by creating three dimensional works, depicting the richness of the Levantine Heritage, in a sophisticated and minimalistic approach, reflected in vibrant colours and contrasts executed in mixed-media and engraved wood, accentuating sophistication
Rousan’s artistic practice encompasses gouache on canvas, as well as 2-D and 3-D artworks. The former provides the opportunity for art to express itself more freely, and simply, to convey specific reflections, while the 2-D artworks are produced to reflect subtlety and sensuality, where detailed patterns are highly involved in the design.
