MANAL SHUAIB

Manal Shuaib منال شعيب Fascinated by Egyptian textiles such as rugs and mats handwoven with course, heavy fibers, Manal Shuaib studies their textures and patterns throughout her artwork in closeup, almost abstracted imagery. Egypt’s history of weaving is fascinating with early fragments dating back to 5000 BCE from the Fayoum region. Manal’s intimate studies observe the unique weaves, threads, and frays as beautiful, individual portraits. —D.N.
