ABOUT the exhibition
In a small village Nawfalia and with the first sun rays in a cold December 1972, Hesso was born, the tenth child in the family. Between wheat fields and cotton fields, he spends his childhood, waking up with farmer’s hymns. 1988 16-year-old Hesso presents his first solo exhibition. In 1992 he moved to Damascus and studied art at The Fine Art university. Since then, Hesso has moved around the world with his paintings. From Nawfalia he carried with him the scent of his mother’s dresses and the taste of tannour bread which he is carrying it in a memory that lives every night in the scene that stretches between the bare banks. He is the son of the plains and the mountains that worry about the coming of the sunset so that the lights are hoarded so that the darkness does not consume them. The artist Hesso manifests himself in his paintings by grasping white in its best expressions, as it extends horizontally over the earth’s surface, where the fields of the barren steppe and the lazy mountains slumber. A dye flows around the frame of the primitive window as if it is painted in white around an erotic niche in the color of square darkness or a dark extension. White is a color, and the color is a proud color in its abundance, which is manifested in its ascetic, simplistic, abstract devotion, disobedient to the eyes of the public and their acquaintances
