Abdul Raouf Shamoun Palestinian artist born in Tal Al Turmos in Gaza, lives and works in Amman. During the sixties, Abdel Raouf Shamoun’s method was symbolist and cubist in style. Shamoun’s current work is devoted to his experiences in the Wihdat Refugee camp near Amman. Slabs of color boldly applied, one against the other, create compositions of motion and dynamic incidence. There is often an active centre with the outer bounds of the painting possessing larger less active shapes. Shamoun feels that he is cleansing the trash of the refugee camp out of himself. In doing so, he finds beauty in the details of its living conditions. He ruminates over how the orderly confusion of the camp is created and finds in it geometry of ruins that inspire him.
