By Andrew E Zarb
The exhibition opens on Friday 5th April from 7.30pm onwards.

“Lift the veil that obscures the heart, and there you will find what you are looking for.”
— Kabir

The exhibition delves into the theme of self-discovery and soul-searching. Upon closer inspection of the series of works, a subtle narrative unfolds. This narrative traces a journey from the veiled, the concealed, the timid, and the insecure to the assertive and confident, ultimately culminating in the nude form dominating the artwork and the viewer’s personal space.
Through the medium of photography, Zarb utilizes various models to depict diverse scenarios, creating a narrative divided into four distinct aspects. Part one is titled Veiled, followed by Intimately Unrestrained, where one finds himself or herself alone and starts experiencing freedom. Part three Fluid Hesitation, shows a play of veiling and unveiling within a watery and fluid context. The last part Unveiled portrays absolute freedom and confidence.
The veil plays a major role in these works, both physically and metaphorically. This is enhanced through clever manipulations of light and shade, creating almost playful compositions. Location scouting was also a very important aspect in drafting these works, to create intimate contexts and scenarios, and portray a series of daily fleeting moments, all leading towards the discovery of the self.
