Rabi Koria

While raised and educated in the Netherlands, the current affairs in the Middle East have affected Rabi Koria’s works greatly. Using momentous images from media and contemporary life, ranging from devastated buildings to tapestry patterns, architecture and private photo albums from holidays to Syria, he gives shape to a life lived between two cultures. They merge together in the use of colors from Middle Eastern landscapes and spices to those of Dutch landscapes and modernist art that he uses in his tableaux of painted ceramic tiles. Not aimed at offering easy comprehensible narratives, the rhythm of the tiles in fact are suggestive of a storyline, the content of which is subjected to the viewer’s perception and interpretation.
