If you enter Gemmayzeh's Art on 56th gallery this month, you'll come face-to-face with children playing with kites and surrounded by birds.These jolly, candid scenes are not the only things Syrian artist Reem Yassouf wanted to communicate through her artworks. "Child's Message," which features around 25 mixed-media works, consists of Yassouf's representations of children both living and dead. A number of Yassouf's pieces, whether consciously or not, bear similarities to Katanani's depictions of children holding on to balloons, playing with kites or looking at butterflies.Reem Yassouf's "Child's Message" is up at Gemmayzeh's Art on 56th until May 5 .
