About

Reconnecting with her parent's native language, Khoury incorporates elements of Arabic writing that give it its charm. Although nothing is explicitly written, she emphasizes the curves and lines that give the language its unique traits. These paintings represent a mix of emotions and memories, but mostly a sense of belonging through a language that represents the Arab world she grew up in.

This large colorful 59-inch square painting is an acrylic paint composition on canvas with pastels, spray paint, and sand. It is stretched, wired, and ready to hang. This abstract artwork is signed by the artist on the front of the artwork. The sides are a continuation of the painting and it does not require framing. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Convenient U.S. and global shipping available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.

Khoury uses vivid fluorescent colors and darker tones as well as thick and thin marks to create compositions with high contrast. In addition, she incorporates pastels to add a softer texture that balances the rough canvas that is treated with sand prior to starting each piece. The sand is sprinkled evenly across the surface to give it a distinct texture.

Khoury begins by creating scratches and marks with pastels, spray paint, and acrylics, remembering Arabic words and phrases as she works. Before the paint dries, she scrapes it off, pulling the paint down towards the end of the canvas. Solid colors are added as a final touch, as well as drips of paint that are placed meticulously on the canvas.

Khoury was born in Ohio following her family’s emigration from Lebanon. Shortly after her birth, her family moved to Saudi Arabia, where she stayed until she was 14. Sally then attended high school and college in Beirut, where she graduated with a BA in Fine Arts with distinction from the Lebanese American University of Beirut. In 2013, she moved back to the United States and settled in California. Her paintings have been featured in group and solo shows in Beirut, Dubai, Italy, and the USA.

Khoury

Khoury was born in Ohio following her family’s emigration from Lebanon. After graduating college in Beirut with a BA in Fine Arts, she moved back to the United States in 2013. Since 2019 she has been living in Qatar. Her paintings have been featured in group and solo shows in Beirut, Dubai, Italy, and the USA.

Khoury uses vivid fluorescent colors and darker tones as well as thick and thin marks to create compositions with high contrast. She incorporates pastels to add softer notes to balance the textured base of the canvas that she refines by adding sand in the initial layer.

Khoury enjoys letting the materials, her intuition and her feelings guide her. Reconnecting with her parent's native language, Khoury incorporates elements of Arabic writing that give it its charm. Although nothing is explicitly written, she emphasizes the curves and lines that give the language its unique traits. Her paintings represent a mix of emotions and memories, but mostly a sense of belonging through a language that represents the Arab world she grew up in.
