GEWELD | VIOLENCE
Some like it not, 2003
The tranquillity of Wafae Ahalouch El Kerasti's drawings and paintings often reveal a disconcerting side of reality, and by letting as much detail as possible fall by the wayside, she reduces her work to its essence. The images are both fictional and realistic, layered with a humour that makes the perpetually covert violence bearable. In this way, the artist expresses her own experience with everyday existence's false bottom, where nothing is what it seems to be at first.
