Mariam Al Wahibi's 'Faces Tell Stories' Exhibition

The solo exhibition "Faces Tell Stories" by Omani artist Mariam Al Wahibi, hosted throughout January at Beit Al Zubair in Muscat, provides a unique insight into artistic expression. Unlike her first exhibition where faces were more enigmatic and less clear, this current exhibition features more readable faces, capturing the observer's spirit in varied and personal ways.

Al Wahibi incorporates verses by Omani poetess Aisha Al Saifi alongside her artworks, thus enhancing the artistic experience and offering viewers additional perspectives on the meanings of the works. She explains that the faces she draws are gateways into the persons they represent, allowing viewers to find faces that resemble them or express their emotions. Some of these faces are creations of her memory or imagination.
