The Cross Art Projects - Adiafa/Diyafa: Gifts of Exchange









Nicole Barakat and Paula do Prado have brought together a collection of textile works through collecting ideas and communicating via them. This collection is quite lovely, expressive through emotion, travel, companionship and heritage. Like collecting delicate flowers and pressing them. A wide diverse of mediums were used and laid out in all there glory across the walls at Cross Art.

I missed the beginning of the artists introduction to the show but I sensed an exuberance in what they were portraying in this exhibition. If you get a chance to see this show, then take your time looking at the work as each piece tells it’s own story and there is an enormous amount of work to take in.

And it’s definitely a show to see.
