This painting is about unfulfilled desires. Seemingly having it all yet not having what is truly wanted.

She is the belle of the ball. She knows that as soon as she’ll walk into the grand hall she will lose all sense of privacy because all eyes would be on her, but it’s not all eyes she’s interested in, it is one particular pair that she cannot place yet. So she slows down her pace. Where is he? She wants to find him – no, she wants him to find her even more. The grand hall door is opening, her window of opportunity is closing……

About the Artist

Dana Khoury
Dubai, UAE

Educated at the most prestigious Aesthetics schools in North America, with a career span of over twenty years in private and international companies, Dana Khoury is considered a leading expert in the world of beauty. Despite her busy career, Dana’s passion for learning led her to pursue a BA in Psychology from Concordia University which only served to fine-tune her innate talent to see beyond the obvious and delve into the depths of human emotions.

Borne in the gulf area, her parents moved back to Lebanon for about nine years before immigrating to Canada when Dana was still a teenager. Twenty years later, now happily married with 2 children, Dana’s life came full circle when she found herself back in the gulf region. Having lived in multiple countries and interacted with different cultures and races served only to strengthen her belief that beyond the superficial differences in the form of expression, raw human emotions, passions, and motivations have an uncanny similarity that anyone can relate to and  understand whether it has been experienced first hand or not.

Her career stars truly aligned to shape her as an artist when she decided to change her canvases from human faces to stretched linens and allow her love for beauty, her deep understanding of human emotions, and her obsession with details to guide her brushes. Her paintings are not simply wall decorations, but rather very artistic thought provoking frames that highlight familiar emotions deeply rooted in all of us.
