ليزا فتاح

Of German origin, Lisa Fattah was married to the Iraqi pioneer sculptor Isamil Fattah whom she met while studying at the Accademia de Belle Arte in Rome where she graduated in 1963. She later trained at the Academy of San Fernando in Medrid (1963-1964).

In her intensely expressionistic style bordering on the brute, Fattah communicates her anger and objection against the violence and injustice suffered by the aggression (1990), displayed in the exhibition Islamic world  which toured the US from 2008-2011, and held in the Jordanian national gallery of fine arts, Amman.

Lest her message is not fully comprehended, she injects the composition with words, linear forms and signs expressing her rage and tying up her ideas to the environment, without mincing any words.
