Caty Cordahi offers a collection of inviting and pleasing works. By showing expressionist representations which are full of local individuals from Oman and the UAE, easily recognized from their local attire, Caty generates in the viewers' mind a series of questions pertaining to the identity and diversity of the local populations and the relationship between local and expatriate populations.
At the outset, Caty simply aimed at immortalizing common and touristic photos into a piece of art. To achieve this, she decided to incorporate some of her pictures (of people, landscapes, and urban views) into her canvases, and build expressionism around and over them. Many of her paintings of Oman and the UAE work therefore in layers, with selected photos underneath colours, shades, and textures.
A French artist now residing in Oman, Caty Cordahi attended Fine Art classes from 1993 to 1998. She was also studying in an expressionism studio (ATEXFO) during the same period. After extensive practice in the years that followed and relocation to Oman more recently, Caty decided to translate her perception of her new host region onto the canvas.
